Regulatory Expectations, Fiduciary Responsibilities, Compliance Considerations, Feasibility of Design, Scheduling
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will prepare construction counsel drafting contracts and advising on developing healthcare facilities to address contractual and regulatory issues that take the project from conception to completion. The panel will discuss how to address issues of funding, zoning, and, when applicable, acquiring a certificate of need (CON), as well as address the regulatory compliance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101 standards, the Life Safety Code (LSC), and NFPA 99 standards (the Health Care Facilities Code (HCFC)), and more.
- Pre-certificate of need
- Certificate of need
- Regulatory compliance
- CMS/Joint Commission accreditation and licensing
- Region-specific and building type design and construction issues
- Contractual considerations
The panel will review these and other relevant topics:
- How does funding procurement impact construction requirements, and how to incorporate lender oversight on the project?
- What are the procedures for acquiring a CON when a CON law is operative? How can the expansion of healthcare facilities be structured around the CON?
- What is the regulatory structure governing the project for CMS accreditation? How might state regulation affect the design as well?
- How can construction contracts for healthcare facilities be structured to address the scope of work and compliance considerations?
- What other compliance considerations should construction counsel address as part of the build-out's coordination through the accreditation stage?
