The Importance of COPN: Serving the Public Need, Supporting Virginia’s Health Care System

The latest monthly edition of VHHA’s FOCUS publication explores the purpose, function, and importance of Virginia’s Certificate of Public Need law as a mechanism to support health care access, charity care, and control costs. The article also examines the potential harm to our health care system and our economy that would result from repeal of COPN as has been proposed in some legislative measures before the 2016 Virginia General Assembly.
