SPRINGFIELD - After meeting with health care providers and consumers this past summer, the Senate Republican Health Facilities Planning Board Task Force offered recommendations at a press conference today that will enable the Board to better carry out its mission to improve the quality of healthcare facilities, services, and equipment to the public, while simultaneously addressing the issues of community need, accessibility, and financing.

State Senator Pamela Althoff (R-Crystal Lake), who serves on the Task Force, said discussions have focused on the rules that govern the board, and consequently, the guidelines that determine how health care facilities in Illinois obtain approval for new buildings, expansions, and other significant capital expenditures.
