About Us

Most states, including Oregon, have Certificate of Need ("CN") programs in place to control the rapidly escalating costs of health care through planning and regulation. Oregon’s CN program was instituted 1971 and arose out of the legislature's desire to achieve reasonable access to quality health care at a reasonable cost.

The Certificate of Need Program is part of the Health Care Regulation and Quality Improvement Program in the Center for Health Protection. Search the Public Health Program Directory to see all programs in the Oregon Public Health Division.
