48-68-211. Violations Penalties Remedies.

(a)  Any public benefit hospital conveyance transactions entered into in violation of this part shall be null and void, and each member of the governing boards and the chief financial officers of the parties to the public benefit hospital conveyance transaction may be subject to a civil penalty of up to one million dollars ($1,000,000), the amount to be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in Davidson County. The attorney general and reporter shall institute proceedings to impose such a penalty. In addition, no license to operate a hospital may be issued or renewed under title 68, chapter 11, part 2, or applicable regulation, if there is a public benefit hospital conveyance transaction entered into in violation of the notice, public hearing, and review requirements of this part.

(b)  Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit the common law authority of the attorney general and reporter to protect charitable trusts and charitable assets in this state. These penalties and remedies are in addition to, and not a replacement for, any other civil or criminal actions that the attorney general and reporter may file under either the common law or statutory law, including rescinding the public benefit hospital conveyance transaction, granting injunctive relief, or any combination of these and other remedies available under common law or statutory law.
