Certificate of public need; authorization of certain amendment. Authorizes, notwithstanding the provisions of the moratorium on nursing home bed construction or additions that was in effect until July 1, 1996, or the provisions of two previous authorizations for amendments to the relevant certificate, the Commissioner of Health to accept and approve a request to amend the conditions of a certificate of public need issued as an exception to a former restriction on filing applications for nursing home bed projects. The bill authorizes the facility to request an amendment to its previous certificate of public need to admit persons, other than residents of the cooperative units, to its nursing home facility beds. The facility must be: (i) operated by an association described in 55-458; (ii) created in connection with a real estate cooperative; and (iii) providing its residents a level of nursing services consistent with the definition of continuing care in Chapter 49 ( 38.2-4900 et seq.) of Title 38.2. This bill applies to one facility to which the original certificate of public need was issued prior to October 3, 1995. The certificate shall expire no later than June 30, 2009. Read the Bill »
