Governor Signs Rural Hospital Legislation

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R-Ann Arbor)

(Mackinac Island, MI)  --  Governor Rick Snyder has signed legislation that will give patients in rural areas more control over where they get their medical treatment. Current law requires certain smaller hospitals to transfer patients to a nursing home within five days if space is available. Sometimes those facilities are more than 50 miles away. The new law, that is now in line with federal legislation, allows patients to remain in one of those designated beds for up to 100 days.
