Alliance Imaging v. Karen Remley, M.D., MBA, FAAP, State Health Commissioner; and Diagnostic Laboratories LLC
Plaintiff says it is holder of multiple Certificates of Public Need (COPNs) issued by Remley for mobile units to provide medical services, including mobile Positron Emission Tomography/Computerized Tomography (PET/CT) and mobile Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) services in Virginia.

Plaintiff says Remley, in her capacity as State Health Commissioner, in a Feb. 2, 2012, letter to Diagnostics, denominated a “case decision” and in which she found that providers of mobile services are no longer required to obtain a COPN to provide mobile medical services in Virginia. Plaintiff seeks an order to reverse the commissioner’s letter and to declare that Remley exceeded her authority, abused her discretion and acted arbitrarily and capriciously, and also seeks the award of costs and other fees.
