Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(65 ILCS 5/11-23-3)
(from Ch. 24, par. 11-23-3)
In the event any municipality has
established a city public
hospital in accordance with the provisions of Section 11-23-1 and in the
further event the corporate authorities shall
determine that the hospital
is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was established or that
those purposes would be better served through the operation of the city
hospital by a corporation, hospital, health care
facility, unit of local government or institution of higher education, the
corporate authorities by ordinance may authorize the
transfer, sale or lease of the hospital to such corporation, hospital,
health care facility, unit of local government or institution of higher
education within or without
the corporate limits of the city, or may authorize the sale or lease of the
hospital to any mental health clinic which obtains any portion of its funds
from the Department of Human Services (as successor to the Department of
Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities). Such
transfer, sale or lease may be on such terms and under such conditions as
the corporate authorities may deem proper without
regard to any provisions of
Division 9 of Article 8 or Divisions 75, 76, 77 and 78 of this Article 11.
At least 10 days prior to the adoption of an ordinance under this
Section the corporate authorities shall make the proposed ordinance
conveniently available for public inspection and shall hold at least one
public hearing thereon. Notice of this hearing shall be published in one
or more newspapers published in the municipality, or if there is none
published in the municipality, in a newspaper having general circulation in
the municipality, at least 10 days prior to the time of the public hearing.
Such notice shall state the time and place of the hearing and the place
where copies of the proposed ordinance will be accessible for examination.
If a city public hospital is transferred, sold or leased as authorized
by this section and if no bonds issued under the provisions of Section
11-23-6 or Section 11-23-13 are outstanding, the city council may transfer
any excess funds remaining in the Hospital Fund to the general fund of the
city to be expended for capital expenditures only and not for operating
expenses of the city.
In the event that prior to the sale or lease of the hospital pursuant
to this Section, a labor organization has been recognized by the hospital
as the exclusive representative of the majority of employees in a
bargaining unit for purposes of collective bargaining, and in the further
event that a purchaser or lessor subject to the National Labor Relations
Act retains or hires a majority of the employees in such a bargaining unit,
such purchaser or lessor shall recognize the labor organization as the
exclusive representative of the majority of employees in that bargaining
unit for purposes of collective bargaining, provided that the labor
organization makes a timely written assertion of its representational
capacity to the purchaser or lessor.
