Nonprofit Hospital Transaction Notices

California law requires the Attorney General's review and consent for any sale or transfer of a health care facility owned or operated by a nonprofit corporation whose assets are held in public trust. This requirement covers health care facilities that are licensed to provide 24-hour care, such as hospitals and skilled nursing facilities.

The review process includes public meetings and, when necessary, preparation of expert reports. The Attorney General's decision often requires the continuation of existing levels of charity care, continued operation of emergency rooms and other essential services, and other actions necessary to avoid adverse effects on healthcare in the local community.


Notices of nonprofit hospital transactions are posted here during the review process.
