       Senator Bogdanoff moved the following:
    1         Senate Amendment (with title amendment)
    3         Delete lines 601 - 620
    4  and insert:
    5         Section 11. Paragraph (c) of subsection (1), paragraph (b)
    6  of subsection (2), and subsection (6) of section 395.003,
    7  Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
    8         395.003 Licensure; denial, suspension, and revocation.—
    9         (1)
   10         (c) Until July 1, 2006, additional emergency departments
   11  located off the premises of licensed hospitals may not be
   12  authorized by the agency.
   13         (2)
   14         (b) The agency shall, at the request of a licensee that is
   15  a teaching hospital as defined in s. 408.07(45), issue a single
   16  license to a licensee for facilities that have been previously
   17  licensed as separate premises, provided such separately licensed
   18  facilities, taken together, constitute the same premises as
   19  defined in s. 395.002(22) 395.002(23). Such license for the
   20  single premises shall include all of the beds, services, and
   21  programs that were previously included on the licenses for the
   22  separate premises. The granting of a single license under this
   23  paragraph shall not in any manner reduce the number of beds,
   24  services, or programs operated by the licensee.
   25         (6) A specialty hospital may not provide any service or
   26  regularly serve any population group beyond those services or
   27  groups specified in its license. A specialty-licensed children’s
   28  hospital that is authorized to provide pediatric cardiac
   29  catheterization and pediatric open-heart surgery services may
   30  provide cardiovascular service to adults who, as children, were
   31  previously served by the hospital for congenital heart disease,
   32  or to those patients who are referred for a specialized
   33  procedure only for congenital heart disease by an adult
   34  hospital, without obtaining additional licensure as a provider
   35  of adult cardiovascular services. The agency may request
   36  documentation as needed to support patient selection and
   37  treatment. This subsection does not apply to a specialty
   38  licensed children’s hospital that is already licensed to provide
   39  adult cardiovascular services.

   42         And the title is amended as follows:
   43         Delete line 41
   44  and insert:
   45         an obsolete provision; conforming a cross-reference;
   46         authorizing a hospital, rather than a specialty
   47         licensed children’s hospital, which is authorized to
   48         provide pediatric cardiac catheterization and
   49         pediatric open-heart surgery services, to provide
   50         cardiovascular service to certain adults;
