Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

55 ILCS 5/5-23001

    (55 ILCS 5/5-23001) (from Ch. 34, par. 5-23001)
    Sec. 5-23001. Establishment of tuberculosis sanitarium. The county board of each county of this State shall have the power in the manner hereinafter provided, to establish and maintain a county tuberculosis sanitarium, and branches, dispensaries, and other auxiliary institutions connected with the same, within the limits of such county, for the use and benefit of the inhabitants thereof, for the treatment and care of persons afflicted with tuberculosis, and shall have the power to levy a tax, subject to such further limitation as may be occasioned by the issuance of bonds as hereinafter provided, not to exceed .075 per cent of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, annually on all taxable property of such county, such tax to be levied and collected in like manner with the general taxes of such county, and to form, when collected, a fund to be known as the "Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund", which tax shall be in addition to all other taxes which such county is now, or hereafter may be, authorized to levy on the aggregate valuation of all property within such county, and the county clerk, in reducing tax levies under the provisions of Section 18-165 of the Property Tax Code, shall not consider the tax for such tuberculosis sanitarium fund, authorized by this Division, as a part of the general tax levy for county purposes, and shall not include the same in the limitation of one percent of the assessed valuation upon which taxes are required to be extended. In order to secure greater working efficiency any county maintaining a tuberculosis sanitarium may convey the property acquired for such purpose, or any part thereof, or any interest therein, to any other county or counties adjacent thereto upon such terms and conditions as the respective county boards thereof shall agree on by a majority vote of all the members of each of the county boards. The foregoing limitations upon tax rates, insofar as they are applicable to counties of less than 1,000,000 population, may be increased or decreased under the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois.
    No money received from taxes authorized to be levied under this Division shall be used for care and treatment of the convalescent or chronically ill.

    (55 ILCS 5/5-23003) (from Ch. 34, par. 5-23003)
    Sec. 5-23003. Use of vacant facilities. When part of the facilities of a sanitarium established and maintained under this Division are vacant and not needed for the care and treatment of persons afflicted with tuberculosis, the board of directors, after first obtaining approval of the County Board, may, for a consideration to be determined by the county board: (a) extend the privileges and use of the sanitarium for the care and treatment of persons who are afflicted with chronic pulmonary diseases other than tuberculosis and persons who are convalescent or chronically ill, or (b) rent the same to any branch, department or agency of the State or Federal government, or to any municipal corporation, quasi municipal corporation, political subdivision or body politic, or agency thereof or any not-for-profit corporation or any non-profit organization or association, provided such lessee or lessees be engaged in public health or welfare work or services in such county; provided such vacant facilities shall be separate so that tuberculosis patients shall be isolated from the convalescent and chronically ill and such rented facilities. Such vacant part may be used partly for any one or more of the uses set forth in (a) and (b). Any services provided by such sanitarium or board may be made available with such rented facilities. Non-profit organization or association means any organization or association, no part of the net earnings of which inures or may lawfully inure to the benefit of any individual. The charge for providing care and treatment of those afflicted with chronic pulmonary disease other than tuberculosis and the convalescent or chronically ill shall not be less than the actual cost of providing such care and treatment.

55 ILCS 5/5-23004

    (55 ILCS 5/5-23004) (from Ch. 34, par. 5-23004)
    Sec. 5-23004. Closure of unnecessary in-patient facility. If the board of directors finds that it is no longer necessary to provide an in-patient facility to serve the residents suffering from tuberculosis, it may recommend to the county board that the tuberculosis sanitarium established and maintained in the county under this Division be closed.
    When such a recommendation is received, the county board shall determine what use should be made of the sanitarium facilities. If the Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund was used to acquire the tuberculosis sanitarium property or to construct an addition thereto, or otherwise improve such property, the county board may, subject to Section 5-23005, use the facilities for other county purposes, may lease them to public or private agencies or may sell them. If the tuberculosis sanitarium facilities are leased to a public or private agency other than the county, or are sold, then such leasing or sale must be for a consideration at least equal to the fair market value or fair rental value. If the county board uses such facilities for other county purposes, then the use shall be for a consideration acceptable to the board of directors and the county board.
    Proceeds from the use, leasing or sale of sanitarium facilities under this Section shall be paid into the Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund of the county for use as provided in this Division.
    If the sanitarium is under the control and management of a joint board of directors, as provided for in Section 5-23006, the approval of each county board of the counties involved as to the manner of disposition of the sanitarium facilities is required and the proceeds from that disposition shall be allocated among those counties in proportion to their share in the costs of construction and maintenance of the facilities.

    (55 ILCS 5/5-23005) (from Ch. 34, par. 5-23005)
    Sec. 5-23005. Out-patient and follow-up services upon closing of facility. A board of directors, upon whose recommendation the county board has closed its sanitarium as provided in Section 5-23004, shall continue in existence and provide out-patient clinical and follow-up services to the residents of its county in other private or public sanitariums of this State. Any of its equipment, facilities and other property which is required or useful in providing those services may be retained by the board of directors and applied to that use rather than as provided in Section 5-23004. The proceeds paid into the Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund under that Section shall be used to pay the costs of providing the out-patient clinical and follow-up services, including but not limited to the construction and maintenance of an out-patient clinic and the acquisition of equipment therefor. Any balance of the proceeds from the disposition of sanitarium facilities under Section 5-23004 remaining after payment of the costs of out-patient clinical and follow-up services under this Section may be used to reduce the rate of tax necessary to provide this in-patient care and the out-patient clinical and follow-up services.

    (55 ILCS 5/5-23006) (from Ch. 34, par. 5-23006)
    Sec. 5-23006. Referendum; joint facilities. When 100 legal voters of any county shall present a petition, to the County Board of such county asking that an annual tax may be levied for the establishment and maintenance of a county tuberculosis sanitarium in such county, such County Board shall certify the proposition to the proper election officials, who shall submit the proposition at an election in accordance with the general election law. At such election every elector may vote for or against the levy of a tax for the establishment and maintenance of a county tuberculosis sanitarium. The proposition shall be in substantially the following form:
--------------------------------------------------------------
    Shall an annual tax of not to
exceed .075 % of the value as            YES
equalized or assessed by the
Department of Revenue for the         ------------------------
establishment and maintenance of
a county tuberculosis sanitarium          NO
be levied?
--------------------------------------------------------------
    If a majority of all the votes cast upon the proposition shall be for the levy of a tax for a county tuberculosis sanitarium the County Board of such county shall thereafter annually levy a tax of not to exceed .075 per cent of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, which tax shall be collected in like manner with other general taxes in such county and shall be known as the "Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund", and thereafter the County Board of such county shall in the annual appropriation bill, appropriate from such fund such sum or sums of money as may be deemed necessary to defray all necessary expenses and liabilities of such county tuberculosis sanitarium.
    If a county has adopted a proposition for the levy of a tax of not to exceed one mill on the dollar for a county tuberculosis sanitarium such tax shall after January 1, 1946 be extended at a rate not to exceed .05 per cent of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, but may be increased to not to exceed .075 per cent of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, by ordering the submission of the proposition to increase such tax to the voters of such county at any regular election in accordance with the general election law; provided that if a county has adopted, prior to January 1, 1946, a proposition for the levy of a tax of not to exceed 1 1/2 mills on the dollar for a county tuberculosis sanitarium, such tax shall after January 1, 1946 be extended at a rate not to exceed .075 per cent of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue.
    The foregoing limitations upon tax rates, insofar as they are applicable to counties of less than 1,000,000 population, may be increased or decreased under the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois.
    The County boards of any 2 or more adjoining counties each having a population of less than 1,000,000 inhabitants may hereafter by agreement provide for the joint construction, maintenance and control of a tuberculosis sanitarium. Such agreement shall specify the site of the proposed sanitarium and the proportionate share of the cost of construction and the cost of maintenance which shall be borne by each of such counties. The proposition for such joint construction, maintenance and control shall be submitted to the voters of each such county at the next succeeding regular election in such county and shall state the proposed site of such sanitarium and the proportionate share of the cost of construction and maintenance to be borne by the respective counties concerned. Each county board shall certify the proposition to the proper election officials who shall submit the proposition at said election in accordance with the general election law. If such proposition is approved by a majority of the voters in each of such counties voting upon the proposition, the presiding officer of the county board of each county, with the advice and consent of that county board, shall appoint 3 directors. The qualifications, terms of office and removal of the directors appointed in each such county shall be as provided in Sections 5-23007 and 5-23008 and vacancies shall be filled in the manner provided in Section 5-23009. The directors so appointed by the several counties shall constitute a joint board of directors for the control and management of the tuberculosis sanitarium. The joint board of directors shall exercise the powers and be subject to the duties prescribed in this Division for boards of directors of tuberculosis sanitaria. The county board of each of the counties shall annually levy the tax herein provided, and may issue bonds as provided in this paragraph, for the purpose of defraying its proportionate share of the cost of construction and maintenance of the tuberculosis sanitarium.
    If any county shall issue bonds as hereinafter provided, then so long as taxes are required to be levied and extended to pay the principal of and interest on such bonds, the rate extended in any year for the benefit of the tuberculosis sanitarium fund shall be limited to the amount by which .075 per cent of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, exceeds the rate extended in such year to pay such principal of and interest on such bonds.

    Sec. 5-23013. Services; regulations. Every sanitarium board established under this Division shall provide sanitarium care and clinical and follow-up services for the benefit of such of the inhabitants of the county who may be afflicted with tuberculosis. Those inhabitants shall be entitled to occupancy, nursing, care, medicines and attendance, according to the rules and regulations prescribed by the board of directors. The board of directors may adopt reasonable rules and regulations requiring payment for services by persons with private health insurance and persons entitled to medical assistance under the Illinois Public Aid Code. The board of directors may adopt reasonable rules and regulations concerning the use of the facilities established pursuant to this Division in order to render the use of these facilities of the greatest benefit to the greatest number, and the board of directors may exclude from the use of the sanitarium any and all persons who willfully violate the board's rules or regulations. The board may not, however, prescribe rules and regulations which conflict with Section 5-23014 of this Division, and a determination of whether a person is an inhabitant or resident of the county for purposes of this Division shall be based on Section 5-23014. Except as authorized and permitted by Section 5-23011 no person afflicted with tuberculosis may be compelled to enter a sanitarium, or any of its branches, dispensaries, or other auxiliary institutions without his consent in writing first having been obtained, or, in case of a minor or one under a disability, the consent in writing of the parent or the parents, guardian or conservator, as the case may be. The board of directors shall upon request or by consent of the persons afflicted, or of his or her parent or guardian extend the benefits and privileges of the institution, under proper rules and regulations, into the homes of persons afflicted with tuberculosis, shall furnish nurses, instruction, medicines, attendance, and all other aid necessary to effect a cure, and shall do all things in and about the treatment and care of persons so afflicted, which will have a tendency to effect a cure of the person or persons afflicted with tuberculosis and to eradicate tuberculosis in the county including the discovery of undiagnosed tuberculosis in the county. Boards of directors shall provide out-patient clinical and follow-up services to tuberculosis patients, in accordance with minimum standards prescribed therefor, by the director of the Department of Public Health. The board of directors may make such arrangements and agreements with public or private health agencies for cooperation and assistance in providing case-finding services and out-patient clinical and follow-up services as it considers necessary or desirable. The board of directors may extend the privileges and use of the sanitarium and treatment to persons so afflicted, residing outside of the county, upon such terms and conditions as the board of directors may from time to time by its rules and regulations prescribe consistent with Section 5-23014.
    Boards of directors may use funds secured from taxes levied under Sections 1 and 2 in providing sanitarium care of tuberculosis patients in private or public sanitariums. No county that has voted for the establishment and maintenance of a county tuberculosis sanitarium is prevented from using funds acquired by levy of annual tax for such purpose for the care of tuberculosis patients in private or public sanitariums by reason of Sections 5-23029 and 5-23030 or Sections 5-23039 and 5-23040 authorizing levy of an annual tax for the care and treatment of persons afflicted with tuberculosis; but if a vote under Sections 5-23029 and 5-23030 or Sections 5-23039 and 5-23040 authorizes the levy of an annual tax for the care and treatment of persons afflicted with tuberculosis, then the levy of an annual tax for the establishment and maintenance of a county tuberculosis sanitarium under Sections 5-23001 and 5-23006 shall be discontinued without submission of the question of discontinuing the levy of a tax under Sections 5-23001 and 5-23006 to a vote of the electors.
