(1) That the conditions of the area in which the property is located prevent the application of certain eligibility requirements of this subpart.
(2) That the area is reasonably viable, and there is a need in the area for an adequate hospital to serve low and moderate income families.
(3) That the mortgage to be insured is an acceptable risk.
(c) Mortgages complying with the requirements of this section shall be insured under this subpart pursuant to section 223(e) of the National Housing Act. Such mortgages shall be insured under and be the obligation of the Special Risk Insurance Fund.
