The 2016 State Medical Facilities Plan (SMFP) was approved by Governor McCrory on December 15, 2015, and has been issued effective January 1, 2016. It includes several need determinations of interest to hospitals. These include need determinations different from the proposed SMFP issued last summer, but were included in or deleted from the final SMFP based on petitions filed with the State Health Coordinating Council, or because of updated data that justified their addition or removal. All of the SMFP need determinations are listed below. Application due dates are absolute deadlines. Applications must be filed with the Healthcare Planning and Certificate of Need Section, which is at 809 Ruggles Drive, Raleigh, NC 27603. The filing deadline is 5:30 p.m. on the application due date.
