2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill would eliminate the requirement for a certificate of need from the Department of Health (DOH) to develop or expand a special care nursing facility. Current law and regulations concerning certificate of need requirements do not differentiate between special care nursing facilities and traditional nursing facilities. Establishing a new facility or expanding an existing facility requires permission from the DOH, granted pursuant to a call by the DOH for applications. There are currently only limited exceptions to the requirement for modest expansions of existing facilities and for certain religiously affiliated nursing facilities intended to serve a religious community.
