Public Hospital Boards Of Trustees

Concerning public hospital boards of trustees, and, in connection therewith, eliminating the restriction that a board may not include more than four local residents and allowing a board to unilaterally acquire real or personal property by lease if the board has designated the public hospital as an enterprise.
2019 Regular Session
Health Care & Health Insurance
Bill Summary

Public hospitals - boards of trustees - membership - acquisition of real and personal property by lease. Under current law, not more than 4 of the 7 trustees of a public hospital board of trustees (hospital board) may be residents of the city or town in which the associated hospital is located. The act removes this restriction.

Current law states that a hospital board may acquire real and personal property by lease only with the approval of the board of county commissioners. The act clarifies this requirement and creates an exception to it; that is, a hospital board that has designated its public hospital as an enterprise for purposes of section 20 of article X of the state constitution is not required to obtain such approval.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
