Text of Regulation Link to Virginia Administrative Code
Goals of Regulation (i) Whether the regulations continue to serve the purpose of determining the public need for medical facilities and services that various providers propose; and

(ii) Whether research and observation continue to indicate that the market forces that would tend to rationalize capital spedning by providers remain weak, thereby necessitating the existence of a public need determination to protect the market and public expenditures. (Note: The General Assembly frequently amends the statutory provisions granting authority for these regulations; changes in the authority may complicate efforts to review the regulations.)
