        (5) A total of 2 in rural areas, as defined by the
    
Health Facilities and Services Review Board.
    No more than one children's community-based health care center owned and operated by a licensed skilled pediatric facility shall be located in each of the areas designated in this subsection (a-10).
    (a-15) There shall be 5 authorized community-based residential rehabilitation center alternative health care models in the demonstration program.
    (a-20) There shall be an authorized Alzheimer's disease management center alternative health care model in the demonstration program. The Alzheimer's disease management center shall be located in Will County, owned by a not-for-profit entity, and endorsed by a resolution approved by the county board before the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly.
    (a-25) There shall be no more than 10 birth center alternative health care models in the demonstration program, located as follows:
        (1) Four in the area comprising Cook, DuPage, Kane,
    
Lake, McHenry, and Will counties, one of which shall be owned or operated by a hospital and one of which shall be owned or operated by a federally qualified health center.
        (2) Three in municipalities with a population of
    
50,000 or more not located in the area described in paragraph (1) of this subsection, one of which shall be owned or operated by a hospital and one of which shall be owned or operated by a federally qualified health center.
        (3) Three in rural areas, one of which shall be owned
    
or operated by a hospital and one of which shall be owned or operated by a federally qualified health center.
    The first 3 birth centers authorized to operate by the Department shall be located in or predominantly serve the residents of a health professional shortage area as determined by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. There shall be no more than 2 birth centers authorized to operate in any single health planning area for obstetric services as determined under the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act. If a birth center is located outside of a health professional shortage area, (i) the birth center shall be located in a health planning area with a demonstrated need for obstetrical service beds, as determined by the Health Facilities and Services Review Board or (ii) there must be a reduction in the existing number of obstetrical service beds in the planning area so that the establishment of the birth center does not result in an increase in the total number of obstetrical service beds in the health planning area.
    (b) Alternative health care models, other than a model authorized under subsection (a-10) or (a-20), shall obtain a certificate of need from the Health Facilities and Services Review Board under the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act before receiving a license by the Department. If, after obtaining its initial certificate of need, an alternative health care delivery model that is a community based residential rehabilitation center seeks to increase the bed capacity of that center, it must obtain a certificate of need from the Health Facilities and Services Review Board before increasing the bed capacity. Alternative health care models in medically underserved areas shall receive priority in obtaining a certificate of need.
    (c) An alternative health care model license shall be issued for a period of one year and shall be annually renewed if the facility or program is in substantial compliance with the Department's rules adopted under this Act. A licensed alternative health care model that continues to be in substantial compliance after the conclusion of the demonstration program shall be eligible for annual renewals unless and until a different licensure program for that type of health care model is established by legislation, except that a postsurgical recovery care center meeting the following requirements may apply within 3 years after August 25, 2009 (the effective date of Public Act 96-669) for a Certificate of Need permit to operate as a hospital:
        (1) The postsurgical recovery care center shall apply
    
to the Health Facilities and Services Review Board for a Certificate of Need permit to discontinue the postsurgical recovery care center and to establish a hospital.
        (2) If the postsurgical recovery care center obtains
    
a Certificate of Need permit to operate as a hospital, it shall apply for licensure as a hospital under the Hospital Licensing Act and shall meet all statutory and regulatory requirements of a hospital.
        (3) After obtaining licensure as a hospital, any
    
license as an ambulatory surgical treatment center and any license as a postsurgical recovery care center shall be null and void.
        (4) The former postsurgical recovery care center that
    
receives a hospital license must seek and use its best efforts to maintain certification under Titles XVIII and XIX of the federal Social Security Act.
    The Department may issue a provisional license to any alternative health care model that does not substantially comply with the provisions of this Act and the rules adopted under this Act if (i) the Department finds that the alternative health care model has undertaken changes and corrections which upon completion will render the alternative health care model in substantial compliance with this Act and rules and (ii) the health and safety of the patients of the alternative health care model will be protected during the period for which the provisional license is issued. The Department shall advise the licensee of the conditions under which the provisional license is issued, including the manner in which the alternative health care model fails to comply with the provisions of this Act and rules, and the time within which the changes and corrections necessary for the alternative health care model to substantially comply with this Act and rules shall be completed.
    (d) Alternative health care models shall seek certification under Titles XVIII and XIX of the federal Social Security Act. In addition, alternative health care models shall provide charitable care consistent with that provided by comparable health care providers in the geographic area.
    (d-5) (Blank).
    (e) Alternative health care models shall, to the extent possible, link and integrate their services with nearby health care facilities.
    (f) Each alternative health care model shall implement a quality assurance program with measurable benefits and at reasonable cost.
