In the event that a hospital does not have a complete 12-month fiscal year in such third prior fiscal year, the assessment under this section shall be $200,000 until such date that such hospital has completed the hospital's first 12-month fiscal year. Upon completing such first 12-month fiscal year, such hospital's assessment under this section shall be the amount not less than 1.83% of each hospital's net inpatient operating revenue and not greater than 3% of such hospital's net inpatient and outpatient operating revenue, as determined by the healthcare access improvement panel in consultation with the department of health and environment, for such first completed 12-month fiscal year.
