SCS/SB 239 - This act describes the powers of the board of hospital trustees (the board). Section 205.190 delineates qualification and organization requirements of the board. It prohibits any trustee from receiving compensation, but allows for the reimbursement of expenses. The board may make rules and regulations and will control the hospital fund, with exceptions. In addition, the board will be responsible for purchase, construction, or lease of hospital grounds, rooms, or buildings.
Except in counties of the third or fourth classification
where an organized hospital already exists, the trustees will
have authority to operate, maintain, and manage the hospital and
facilities. However, any lease of substantially all of the
hospital may be entered into only upon approval of the county
commission of any first classification, non-charter county, which
has the authority to separately negotiate and enter into
contractual agreements with the lessee as a condition of approval
of the lease.
