(225 ILCS 60/25) (from Ch. 111, par. 4400-25)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 25. The Secretary of the Department may, upon receipt of a written communication from the Secretary of Human Services, the Director of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Director of Public Aid), or the Director of Public Health that continuation of practice of a person licensed under this Act constitutes an immediate danger to the public, and after consultation with the Chief Medical Coordinator or Deputy Medical Coordinator, immediately suspend the license of such person without a hearing. In instances in which the Secretary immediately suspends a license under this Section, a hearing upon such person's license must be convened by the Medical Board within 15 days after such suspension and completed without appreciable delay. Such hearing is to be held to determine whether to recommend to the Secretary that the person's license be revoked, suspended, placed on probationary status or reinstated, or whether such person should be subject to other disciplinary action. In the hearing, the written communication and any other evidence submitted therewith may be introduced as evidence against such person; provided however, the person, or their counsel, shall have the opportunity to discredit, impeach and submit evidence rebutting such evidence.
