Recommended Need Determinations

The document below contains the draft need determination tables from the recommended 2019 State Medical Facilities Plan (SMFP). The 2019 SMFP contains no need determinations beyond those listed in this document. The 2019 SMFP has not received the Governor's final approval. Therefore, the data, need determinations, and Certificate of Need application dates are subject to change in the final SMFP. Healthcare Planning provides no assurances or representations as to the accuracy of the recommended need determinations, and any user assumes the risk of errors or inaccuracy.

Note: The 2019 State Medical Facilities Plan will be posted on the website on or before December 31, 2018.

Chapter 3: Certificate of Need Review Categories and Schedule

For services and equipment not included in the above document, individuals should reference the general Certificate of Need Review Categories and Schedule found in Chapter 3 of the 2019 SMFP. For additional information, please contact Certificate of Need at 919-855-3873.

Chapter 3 is being provided for information purposes only and, as is true with the remainder of the 2019 SMFP, it should be considered draft at this time and remains subject to change until the 2019 SMFP is approved by the governor.
