Florida City Develops Operating Restrictions for Pain Management Clinics

Deland, Fla., leaders are developing operating restrictions for pain management clinics, according to a Daytona Beach News-Journal report.

The law would require clinics to have sufficient parking and an indoor waiting room for patients; hours of operation between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday to Friday with no weekend hours; and a location at least half a mile from any other pain clinic. The ordinance may also require the clinic to be located at least half a mile from schools and drug stores, according to the report.

City Attorney Darren Elkind said the ordinance may be ready in 60-90 days. The ordinance will have to be reviewed by the Planning Board and then the Commissioners for final approval.
