Medical facility licensing is governed by complex federal and state regulations. Specific licensure requirements vary depending on whether the facility will be requesting Medicare certification or state licensure. Medical facility accreditation includes these regulatory requirements and requires the additional unique standards of each accrediting body.
Successful medical facility licensure and accreditation requires the organizational staff to have a clear understanding of these requirements, accurate and timely submission of the application, development, and implementation of facility operating standards, and significant facility on-site preparation.
