2018 SMFP Need Determinations

1.18.2018

The 2018 State Medical Facilities Plan (SMFP) was approved by Governor Cooper on December 11, 2017, and has been issued effective January 1, 2018. It includes need determinations of interest to a number of different types of providers. Several of the need determinations were different from the proposed SMFP issued last summer, but were changed in the final SMFP based on petitions filed with the State Health Coordinating Council (SHCC) or because of updated data which justified their addition or removal. Of particular note is the SHCC’s decision to significantly revise the methodology for determining need for operating rooms. As shown below, those revisions resulted in a larger number of operating rooms becoming available for development than in past years.

All of the SMFP need determinations identified are listed below. Please note that application due dates are absolute deadlines. Applications must be filed with the Healthcare Planning and Certificate of Need Section, which is located at 809 Ruggles Drive, Raleigh, NC 27603. The filing deadline is 5:30 p.m. on the application due date.
