Health Facility Licensing & Certification

About the Survey and Certification Team

The Health Facility Licensing & Certification Program (HFLC) is responsible for regulating certain types of non-long term care health care facilities and agencies. 

To ensure that regulated health care facilities comply with all applicable federal and state requirements, HFLC’s Survey and Certification team conducts routine federal Medicare certification surveys and state licensure surveys as well as state and federal complaint investigations.
