OAR 333-610-0060
Hospital Long-Term Care Beds


Long-term care facility services and beds offered in or through a hospital must be separately licensed by the Seniors and People with Disabilities Division. Therefore, the creation of a long-term care facility by a hospital will be considered to constitute the establishment of a new health care facility, subject to review under OAR 333-550-0010 (Health Services Subject to Review)(1). Additions to the bed capacity of such facilities will be subject to review if such additions are greater than 10 percent of the existing capacity of the long-term care facility, or greater than 10 beds, whichever is less, as provided in OAR 333-550-0010 (Health Services Subject to Review)(3).


When a hospital proposes to create a new long-term care facility which will either be associated with, or located in, the hospital; or increase the number of long-term care beds (as defined in OAR 333-610-0010 (Definitions)(12)) in such a facility by more than 10 beds or 10 percent of the facility’s bed capacity, whichever is less, or when a hospital proposes to relocate long-term care beds to such a facility, the project will be subject to certificate of need on the same basis as any freestanding nursing home project would be under OAR 333-610-0000 (General) to 333-610-0030 (Need).
