Permits for certain medical care facility projects; civil penalty. Exempts projects in Planning District 11, other than those involving nursing homes, from the requirement to obtain a certificate of public need and creates a permitting process for projects in Planning District 11 that requires the Commissioner of Health to issue a permit for a project but requires the Commissioner to condition the permit on (i) the agreement of the applicant to provide a specialized level of care at a reduced rate to indigent patients, accept patients requiring specialized care, or facilitate the development and operation of primary medical care services in designated medically underserved areas of the applicant's service area and (ii) compliance of the applicant with quality of care standards adopted by the Board of Health. The bill provides that lack of compliance is subject to a civil penalty. Read the Bill »
