SB 1300 (Cortese, D-Campbell) 

Pending Oppose

SB 1300 (Cortese, D-Campbell)  Details

Passed the Senate Appropriations Committee without a hearing due to minimal fiscal impact. Pending a Senate floor vote.

SB 1300 would extend the notice period for proposed closures or eliminations of inpatient psychiatric or maternity services from 90 days to 120 days. It would also require the facilities to provide an impact analysis report (paid for by the hospital) to the Department of Health Care Access and Information. If the loss of beds would impact the community’s health, the bill would also require the California Department of Public Health to prioritize and expedite the licensing of additional beds as necessary to mitigate the negative impacts identified in the report.
