Certificate of Need
Navigating the certificate of need (“CN”) application and exemption process can be complicated, competitive, and political. Yet, the CN process is critical. Often, without CN approval, health care providers cannot operate a facility – or expand, relocate or sell a facility, or offer new clinical or surgical services at a facility. Additionally, an existing facility may be adversely affected if a competitor obtains CN approval in the service area.
The health care attorneys at Studebaker Nault have successfully advocated for clients seeking to properly avoid CN review, successfully obtained CN approval for clients, opposed CN applications of competing providers, and represented clients in related litigation.
