New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:9-12.30 - Legislative Findings

30:9-12.30. Legislative findings
The Legislature hereby finds that:

a. Certain public general hospitals in this State provide essential health care and special services not provided by any other health care facility available to the whole population.

b. Provision of such necessary care without adequate compensation places a severe strain on hospital budgets, limiting expenditures for improved operating efficiencies, and increasing the cost of borrowed funds.

c. The primary responsibility for providing essential health care services for those who cannot afford it rests with State and local government.

d. A small number of public general hospitals in the State bear a disproportionate share of providing medical and health care facilities or of providing services for indigent patients.

e. Effective hospital management requires that the nature and level of any assistance be known before budgeting and capital planning decisions are made.

L.1977, c. 289, s. 2, eff. Dec. 1, 1977.
