Conversion facilities

  • fee
  • rules


A facility that is licensed as a long term care facility under ORS 441.025 (License issuance) may apply to the Department of Human Services for licensure as a conversion facility. The department shall issue a conversion facility license upon receipt of an application and a fee that meet requirements established by the department by rule.


(a) The department shall adopt rules governing the conversion of a facility’s license from a long term care facility license to a residential care facility license and the regulation of the facility during the conversion period.


As of the date of licensure as a conversion facility, the conversion facility must be in substantial compliance with applicable state and local laws, rules, codes, ordinances and permit requirements.


As used in this section, “substantial compliance” means a level of compliance with state law and with rules of the department such that any identified deficiencies pose a risk of no more than negligible harm to the health or safety of residents. [2017 c.679 §20]
