BILL NUMBER:S4817 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law and the New York City health and hospitals corporation act, in relation to hospital community advisory boards PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To require every general hospital to have a community advisory board and community service plan. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Sec. 1 amends PHL § 2803-1 to: extend the current requirement that "voluntary non-profit" hospitals have a community service plan to apply to every general hospital, including public hospitals and for-profit hospitals; require hospitals to involve its community advisory board in the preparation of its community service plan; and require every hospital to have a community advisory board (CAB), similar to the current requirement for New York City public hospitals. Sec. 2 amends the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation Act (Chapter 1016 of the laws of 1969) to require that HHC hospital CAB membership lists be filed with the State Department of Health (as the bill requires for other hospital CABs), and to delete the outdated $25 limit on expense reimbursement for CAB members. Sec. 3 provides for an effective date 270 days after enactment.
