You should look in to classes in health care administration or similar. There is a great deal required to open any health care facility–far more than just having a “license”. There are a myriad of rules & regulations governed by state & federal law as well as medicare, and other regulatory bodies that oversee these facilities. You also need permits for medical waste, OSHA, disability code regulations, nursing staff & administrators, you need to have some physician coverage, insurance requirements, a billing department, and many other supportive functions. You might want to try & get a job working in one as well for some experience in what all is involved in this.
