Approval process for new hospitals should change, Florida governor says

Orlando Sentinel, February 4, 2008
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has recommended a repeal of the certificate-of-need process for new acute-care hospitals in the state and replace it with a licensing process. Ending certificates of need would "increase competition and efficiency in the healthcare marketplace and provide Floridians with greater access to quality services," Crist's said in his budget message.
