SR 1063 – GeorgiaStatus: Enacted
Year Introduced: 2018
A RESOLUTION creating the Senate Study Committee on Certificate of Need Reform; and for other purposes: Georgia’s Certificate of Need laws have remained static despite significant changes in the delivery and cost of health care. Hospitals, doctors, and other providers must work together to meet the challenge of delivering services with better outcomes at a lower cost. Georgia needs additional health care facilities to meet the needs of patients, particularly in mental health, surgery, and emergency settings; and Certificate of Need policies should be aligned to support the survival and growth of rural hospitals. The committee shall undertake a study of the conditions, needs, issues, and problems mentioned above and recommend any action or legislation which the committee deems necessary or appropriate.
