Certificate of Need
The following is North Carolina hospitals' position on Certificate of Need policy issues as approved on Nov. 18, 2016:
North Carolina hospitals and health systems support the current services covered under North Carolina's Certificate of Need law. We recognize that the application and appeals process could be updated to be more streamlined and efficient, and that monetary thresholds for capital expenditures could be increased in response to modern economic conditions. We have been and continue to be supportive of efforts to do so in the rules review process.
