The Office of Plans and Construction is primarily responsible for ensuring that hospitals, nursing homes, ambulatory surgical centers, and Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD) are safe, functional, and provide safety-to-life for the patients and residents.

This Office reviews and approves facilities' plans and specifications and surveys their construction. These licensed health care facilities must notify the Office of Plans and Construction in writing at the address below before any equipment replacements, renovations, additions, or new facilities are created. Plans and specifications for such activities must be approved before any construction begins. Architects, engineers and other specially trained plans and construction personnel survey facilities under construction and, when necessary, write reports for required corrections to the construction before approval of the project is given. See Information for Project Review Packet for more detailed instructions regarding the submissions of plans to this office.
