- Additionally, the Department requires all hospitals (or owners of hospitals) to provide written notice to the Department at least 90 days prior to entering into an agreement for the sale or the lease of the land or property on which the hospital is located. The Department has provided hospitals with a form for this purpose and written notification to the Department shall include a copy of the agreement, the names of all parties included, and the intended use of proceeds from the sale or lease of land or property.
