(210 ILCS 45/3-116)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4153-116)
If the applicant has not been previously licensed or if the
facility is not in operation at the time application is made, the Department
shall issue only a probationary license. A probationary license shall be
valid for 120 days unless sooner suspended or revoked under Section 3-119.
Within 30 days prior to the termination of a probationary license, the Department
shall fully and completely inspect the facility and, if the facility meets
the applicable requirements for licensure, shall issue a license under Section
3-109. If the Department finds that the facility does not meet the requirements
for licensure but has made substantial progress toward meeting those requirements,
the license may be renewed once for a period not to exceed 120 days from
the expiration date of the initial probationary license.
