The History and Future of North Carolina’s Certificate of Need Law. The Effect of a Certificate of Need Overhaul on the Commercial Real Estate Market and Beyond

The North Carolina Certificate of Need law prohibits health care providers from acquiring, replacing or adding to their facilities or equipment without the prior approval of the Department of Health and Human Services.  There has been much discussion over the past several years among Healthcare attorneys, the medical community and legislators about the need for the Certificate of Need law to continue in the future. 

Come join Triangle Commercial Real Estate Women as we hear from Noah Huffstetler, Partner and Candace S. Friel, Partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP – Attorneys and Counselors at Law about the implications of eliminating the Certificate of Need law.  How will such a move affect the Urban/Rural divide?  How does Certificate of Need affect competition between medical practices and hospitals?  What are the implications for Commercial Real Estate development, acquisition, leasing and finance?  Without a Certificate of Need requirement, could North Carolina become a destination for healthcare tourism?

The NC State University Alumni Center is located at 2450 Alumni Drive in Raleigh (on Centennial Campus)




A special thanks to our sponsor Bobbitt
