18A:64G-6.1g Five-year period for review of substantive changes.
149. For a period of five years after the effective date of P.L.2012, c.45 (C.18A:64M-1 et al.), any substantive changes that result in the diminution, deterioration or reduction to essential health care services currently provided by University Hospital, including but not limited to, emergency, pediatric, surgical, family health, outpatient ambulatory diagnostic, treatment and clinical services, cancer treatment services and all services essential to maintaining level one trauma status, shall be subject to review by the University Hospital Community Oversight Board and approval by the Department of Health and Senior Services through a licensing review process. In determining whether to approve a substantive change in an essential service provided by University Hospital, among the factors the Department of Health and Senior Services shall consider is whether that service will continue to be provided to the greater Newark community through collaborative or other arrangements with area hospitals.
University Hospital shall provide quarterly financial statements to the Department of Health and Senior Services which shall be posted on the hospital's public Internet website.
