Hospital Facilities Rules

The proposed repeal of 29 rules in Subchapter 10A NCAC 13B, Licensing of Hospitals, is in response to enactment of Session Law 2017-174, Senate Bill 42, Section 1.(b) that became effective July 21, 2017. The provisions in this act require the Hospital Facilities Rules to be repealed within 120 days after the act becomes law. These rules are being repealed because the legislature eliminated the need for these rules, as the Session Law specifies for additional temporary and permanent rulemaking replacing the rules with requirements of the Facilities Guidelines Institute (FGI), Guidelines for the Design and Construction of Hospitals so that licensed hospitals in North Carolina are designed and constructed in compliance with a national standard of practice.
