(A) Except as provided in division (B) of this section, a certificate of need is not transferable prior to the completion of the reviewable activity for which it was granted. If any person holding a certificate of need transfers the certificate of need to another person before the reviewable activity is completed, or enters into an agreement that contemplates the transfer of the certificate of need on the completion of the reviewable activity, the certificate of need is void. If the controlling interest in an entity that holds a certificate of need is transferred prior to the completion of the reviewable activity, the certificate of need is void.
(B) Division (A) of this section does not prohibit the transfer of a certificate of need between affiliated or related persons, as defined in rules adopted under section 3702.57 of the Revised Code, if the transfer does not result in a change in the person that holds the ultimate controlling interest, as defined in the rules, in the certificate of need.
The transfer of a long-term care facility after the completion of a reviewable activity for which a certificate of need was issued is not a transfer of the certificate of need, unless the facility is transferred pursuant to an agreement entered into prior to the completion of the reviewable activity.
