Criminal Case: Pending Arrest as a Health Care Facility Owner
No doubt you're feeling stressed!
The fact is if you are the owner of any Health Care facility licensed by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) and you have been recently arrested, you may be disqualified from ownership of your facility.
Ownership includes more than a 51 percent stake in any of these types of facilities: Nursing Home, Assisted Living Facility, Health Care Clinic, Ambulatory Surgical Center, Adult Day Care, Durable Medical Equipment Provider, Home Health Agency, Homemaker Companion Service, etc.

Properly Handling Your Criminal Case
For trained professionals, so much is at stake when a criminal case occurs. Did you know that you may be required to do a Change of Ownership (CHOW) of your facility until your criminal case is resolved?
If your criminal case is not properly handled, it could affect your ownership interests in your health care facility. In addition, you will be ineligible for ownership until your criminal case is resolved. That's why you should seek the legal counsel of experienced attorneys to properly handle your criminal case.
