    A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Chapter 6 of Title 31 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to state health planning and development, so as to provide that certain destination cancer hospitals are subject to certificate of need requirements; to add a definition and revise a definition; to provide certain conditions relating to certificates of need for new institutional health services; to provide considerations for qualification for issuance of certificates of need relating to destination cancer hospitals; to provide for penalties for destination cancer hospitals which fail to comply with minimum requirements; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.
