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.

    Sec. 11-22-2. In the event any municipality has established a public hospital in accordance with the provisions of this Division 22 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 hospital by a corporation, hospital, health care facility, unit of local government or institution of higher education, the corporate authorities may by ordinance 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 municipality, 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 or 10 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.
    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.

    (65 ILCS 5/Art. 11 Div. 23 heading)
DIVISION 23. HOSPITALS IN CITIES OF LESS THAN 100,000

65 ILCS 5/11-23-1

    (65 ILCS 5/11-23-1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-23-1)
    Sec. 11-23-1. Whenever at least 100 electors of a city with a population of less than 100,000 present a petition to the city clerk of the city asking that an annual tax, not to exceed .06% of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, be levied each year on all taxable property of the city for the establishment and maintenance of a public hospital, or for the purchase and maintenance of an existing nonsectarian public hospital, within the city, the city clerk shall certify the proposition for submission at an election in accordance with the general election law. The proposition shall be in substantially the following form: "Shall a ....% tax, for establishing and maintaining (or for purchasing and maintaining) a public hospital be levied against the taxable property of the city of ....?" and shall specify the rate of taxation mentioned in the petition. If a majority of all votes cast on the proposition are in favor of the proposition, the tax specified in the notice shall be levied and collected annually in the same manner as are other general taxes in the city, and shall be known as the hospital fund. However, municipalities authorized to levy this tax on July 1, 1967, shall have a rate limit of .06%, or the limit in effect on July 1, 1967, whichever is greater. Thereafter, the city council shall include an appropriation in the annual appropriation ordinance of such sums of money as may be necessary to defray all necessary expenses and liabilities of the hospital. This annual hospital tax shall be in addition to the amount authorized to be levied for general purposes under Section 8-3-1 and shall be exclusive thereof and not included within any limitation of rate or amount for other municipal purposes.
    The foregoing limitations upon tax rates may be increased or decreased under the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois.

    (65 ILCS 5/11-23-2) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-23-2)
    Sec. 11-23-2. In case an annual hospital tax has been levied and collected under this Division 23 for 3 or more consecutive years, and the city has not established or maintained, or purchased and maintained, a hospital in accordance with this Division 23, the mayor of the city, with the approval of the city council, may authorize the payment of all funds in the city treasury derived from that tax, to any nonsectarian public hospital within or without the corporate limits of the city maintained for the use and benefit of the inhabitants of the city who are sick or are injured or maimed. These funds, when so turned over to such a hospital, shall be used solely for its maintenance under the sole control of the management of the hospital. Thereafter, funds derived from this annual hospital tax shall be turned over to that hospital as soon as received by the city, until the city council shall provide otherwise by an ordinance approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon at any election. The city council may order such ordinance certified by the clerk and submitted by the proper election authority to the voters at any election in accordance with the general election law.
    The management of such a hospital shall submit to the city council a semi-annual report of the expenditure of such funds as have been received from the city from the hospital tax.

    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.
