THE STATE AND ITS GOVERNMENT
ATTORNEYS GENERAL, DIRECTOR OF CHARITABLE TRUSTS, AND COUNTY ATTORNEYS
The purpose of this subdivision is to ensure that health care charitable trusts provide the communities they serve with benefits in keeping with the charitable purposes for which the trusts were established and in recognition of the advantages the trusts enjoy. It acknowledges that each community is unique and its particular health care problems and needs should be examined and the community benefits provided by health care charitable trusts which serve it should be directed toward addressing the issues and concerns of that community. Community involvement in the development of community benefits plans is necessary to make the health care charitable trusts more responsive to the true needs of the community. State oversight of the planning process and public access to the community benefits plans will assure appropriate use of the resources of health care charitable trusts.
