HB 6078 would provide for the licensure of pregnancy termination specialty centers.  The bill defines “pregnancy termination specialty center” as a facility that performs 50 or more surgical abortions in one calendar year.  These centers would no longer be considered ambulatory surgical treatment centers.

HB 6078 states that certain requirements pertaining to ambulatory surgical treatment centers do not apply to pregnancy termination specialty centers.  It also explains that the provisions of the Act apply to pregnancy termination specialty centers, but if a provision of the Act is in conflict with a provision concerning pregnancy termination specialty centers, then the provision concerning pregnancy termination specialty centers shall control.

The bill would require the Department of Public Health to annually conduct at least one unannounced inspection of each pregnancy termination specialty center.  It would also require the notification of patients if the Department finds a violation of the Act that could threaten patients’ health.

STATUS

Similar to HB 3274, which was introduced in 2015.
