Healthcare rules get overhaul in Georgia
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, April 7, 2008
An overhaul of state healthcare regulations known as certificate of need has won Georgia House approval by a vote of 138-17. The bill would help general surgeons open ambulatory surgery centers and would let hospitals build parking decks and other non-clinical projects without state approval. It also would lift restrictions on some hospitals currently only allowed to deliver babies only in cases of emergencies.
