DOUBLE CERTIFICATE OF NEED APPROVAL

Recently, HealthSouth selected NHA to prepare and file a certificate of need approval for a 40-bed comprehensive medical rehabilitation hospital in Ocala, Florida.  After receiving approval from AHCA in June 2008, the applicant was challenged by two existing CMR hospital providers, and HealthSouth of Ocala is currently undergoing the Department of Administrative Hearing process.   Prior to the trial date, NHA filed a second HealthSouth of Ocala CON application for a 60-bed CMR hospital in Ocala after recognizing an increased bed need in the community.  In June, 2009 the second CON was approved by AHCA.
