Modernization of a hospital plant, the development of a new nursing home or the expansion of an existing nursing facility, or the acquisition by hospitals of major and sophisticated medical diagnostic equipment (such as linear accelerators, imaging equipment and lithotripters), all require Certificate of Need ("CON") experience before the Commission on Hospitals and Health Care. Murtha Cullina obtained the first CON in the State of Connecticut for a mobile MRI service to be shared by three hospitals and also assisted in obtaining the first CON granted for a specialized AIDS facility in the state. The firm's lawyers have been successful in obtaining CONs for more than 2,500 nursing home beds for both existing and new nursing home facilities, and have assisted hospitals and nursing homes in the financing and construction of numerous Certificate of Need authorized projects.
