California Healthline

The California Hospital Association plans to push for new legislation that would extend hospitals’ deadline to comply with state seismic safety standards, according to a CHA official, Payers & Providers reports. By 2013, California hospitals are required to replace or update facilities that could collapse in an earthquake. The state initially set the compliance date for 2008, but pushed the deadline back with subsequent legislation.
