§ 401.18. Hospital-based skilled nursing facilities—statement of policy.

 (a)  The Department will apply the relevant criteria contained in Chapter 14 of the State Health Services Plan (SHSP) in the review of Certificate of Need applications to establish hospital-based skilled nursing facilities.

 (b)  The criteria to be applied will include the long-term care bed need projections contained in Appendix 14-A to Chapter 14 of the SHSP and any updated revisions to that Appendix. If a proposed hospital-based skilled nursing facility is located in a county for which the number of licensed or approved long-term care beds equals or exceeds the projected bed need, the Department will consider approval of the application only if the applicant is able to demonstrate that the approval is otherwise justified under the criteria contained in Chapter 14 of the SHSP.

 (c)  This section applies to Certificate of Need applications for which a completion of preliminary assessment has not been published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

 (d)  This section will remain in effect unless it is superseded by specific criteria in the SHSP addressing the issue of bed need projections for hospital-based skilled nursing facilities.


   The provisions of this §  401.18 adopted November 4, 1994, effective November 5, 1994, 24 Pa.B. 5563.
