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. This requirement applies to health care facilities that are licensed to provide 24-hour care, such as general acute care hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. The review process includes a public meeting and, when necessary, preparation of an independent health care impact statement to evaluate whether the transaction may create a significant effect on the availability or accessibility of health care services to the affected community. The Attorney General's decision often requires the continuation of existing levels of charity care and community benefits, emergency services and other essential health care services. The Attorney General is required to consider any factors the Attorney General deems relevant including whether the agreement or transaction is in the public interest, is fair and reasonable to the nonprofit corporation, will result in private inurement, is at fair market value, involves any breach of trust, creates a significant effect on the availability or accessibility of health care services, and creates a significant effect on the availability and accessibility of cultural interests provided by the facility in the affected community. Members of the public, patients, employees, elected officials, health care and legal advocates, and hospital management are encouraged to submit written comments on transactions. Notices of transactions are listed below, including instructions on how to submit written comments to staff and information about a public meeting.

The Attorney General's Offices also receives requests to amend conditions imposed by the Attorney General when granting consent for the sale or transfer of a health care facility. Before approving any request to amend a condition, the Attorney General is required to provide public notice of the proposed request for an amendment and information as to how a member of the public can request a public meeting. In approving a request to amend a condition that relates to the operation of a health care facility, such as required levels of charity care and continuation of essential services, the Attorney General considers the effect of the proposed amendment on the availability or accessibility of health care services to the affected community. Members of the public, patients, employees, elected officials, health care and legal advocates, and hospital management are encouraged to submit written comments on transactions and may also request a public meeting. Notices of current requests to amend a condition are listed below, including instructions on how to submit comments to staff and request a public meeting.
