STATE OF FLORIDA AGENCY FOR HEALTH CARE ADMINISTRATION OFFICE OF PLANS AND CONSTRUCTION http://www.ahca.myflorida.com/MCHQ/Plans/

INFORMATION FOR PROJECT REVIEW The following information is intended to assist in the submission of plans and specifications for health facility construction to the Agency for Health Care Administration, Office of Plans and Construction. Review by this office is required only for those facilities licensed and/or certified by the Agency and required by Florida statutes to have plans reviewed by the Agency. These facility types include: Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASC) and Intermediate Care Facilities for the developmentally disabled (ICF/DD). Plans and specifications shall also be submitted to the Agency for review of all detached outpatient facilities of hospitals that provide surgical procedures requiring general anesthesia or that administer I.V. conscious sedation, that provide cardiac catheterization services, or that are to be licensed as ASCs. All other outpatient facilities of hospitals must be reviewed, except those that are physically detached from, and have no utility connections with the hospital, and that do not block emergency egress from or create a fire hazard to the hospital and do not provide services to any inpatients. To determine if a detached outpatient facility meets this plan review exemption criteria, the licensed hospital shall submit the following information for a no-fee cursory review: • • • •

A program of services to be offered in the detached facility and a statement from the licensed hospital that no inpatients will be treated or examined within the detached facility. A statement that there are no utility connections to the hospital. The address or location of the detached outpatient facility. If the detached outpatient facility is on the campus of the licensed hospital, a dimensional site plan showing the location of the hospital relative to the location of the detached outpatient facility shall be provided. This information will help determine whether the emergency egress or fire safety of the hospital has been adversely affected.

After this cursory review has been completed, and if the facility meets the exemption requirements, a letter of exemption from review by the Office of Plans and Construction will be sent to the hospital. With this exemption letter, the hospital can contact the Hospital and Outpatient Unit in the Bureau of Health Facility Regulation of the Agency to list this outpatient facility as part of the hospital’s outpatient program. New facilities which are not listed as part of the licensed facility’s outpatient program but are on the same property and/or immediately adjacent to the existing licensed facility must be submitted to the Office of Plans and Construction for a no-fee cursory review to determine whether egress and fire safety of the licensed facility has been adversely affected. Any renovation, remodeling, addition or alteration to the physical plant of a hospital, nursing home, ASC or ICF/DD that would require a building permit must be reviewed Revised 1-20-2018

by the Office of Plans and Construction, regardless of the cost of such alterations, before any construction may commence. Some small projects such as interior finish upgrades and preventive maintenance do not require submission to the Agency. The Office of Plans and Construction conducts no-fee cursory reviews to determine if the scope of work involved in these projects will require submission as a reviewable project. All projects submitted for a no-fee cursory review must include a completed Cursory Review Application (CRA). The response to the cursory review request will be sent to the person identified as the facility contact in the CRA. Cursory review requests must be submitted by email to [email protected] Adult living Facilities (ALF), Hospices, and Birthing Centers are licensed by the Agency, but plan review by the Office of Plans and Construction is not required. Fire safety surveys are required for these and facilities and are completed by either the Agency or the local fire inspecting authorities. Renal dialysis facilities not attached to the hospital license are not licensed but are certified for federal Medicare and Medicaid. There are no regulatory physical plant requirements for these facilities and plan review is not required. All projects submitted to this office will be given a separate and distinct project number. It is essential that this project number be included on all further material submitted for this project including drawings, specifications, letters, fee payments, etc. If additional projects are submitted for review, include on the transmittal letter all facility information requested on the Plan Review Application so a new project log number can be assigned to the project.

REQUIREMENTS FOR PROJECT SUBMISSION The following items must be submitted to the Office of Plans and Construction before any review can be undertaken. If any of these items are not included in the submission, the project will either be placed on hold and no review initiated or the project will be disapproved and will require another submittal. Plan Review Fee A fee is charged by the State of Florida for the review of plans and construction. The Agency is authorized to charge an application fee of $2,000 for the review of plans and construction on all projects, no part of which is refundable. The application fee payment must accompany the initial submission. All fees for the review, including construction surveys, will be at $100 per hour and/or based upon the actual cost of review (including travel expense) for the remaining portions of the plan reviews and construction surveys. Any subsequent fee payment that is due is payable upon receipt of an invoice or notification in writing from the Agency. Checks must be submitted by the provider and shall be made payable to “Treasurer, State of Florida” and should be noted “for Deposit to the Office of Plans and Construction Plan Review Trust Fund”. The Agency can only accept a review fee from the provider. Plan Review Application (PRA) Revised 1-20-2018

2 of 17

This application shall be completed in its entirety at the time the review is scheduled. If all information is not complete, accurate and current, the plans may not be able to be processed and review may not commence. PRA form is available from the Agency’s web site at the following address: http://www.ahca.myflorida.com/MCHQ/Plans/Forms_Rules_Presentations.shtml. Completion of this form is required at the time of scheduling for initial submission. Firm Certification and Professional Registration At the time of Construction Document (Stage III) submittal, a current State of Florida firm certification number must be provided for each architectural and engineering design firm doing business under an assumed name. For each design professional signing, sealing and dating the submitted documents, a current and active State of Florida registration number must also be provided. Information regarding such firm certification and registration requirements may be obtained from the applicable state licensing board. Construction documents (Stage III) submitted to this office are public record documents and must be properly signed, dated (under the signature) and sealed (embossed) by the design professional responsible for the content. Such seals and signatures must be in keeping with the requirements of the Florida State Board of Architecture and the Florida State Board of Professional Engineers. This includes the following requirements: • • •

Both engineers and architects must sign, date under signature and emboss seal each sheet for which they are responsible. If there is a book of specifications, all design professionals responsible for the content of those specifications must sign, date (under signature) and emboss seal the front cover or title sheet. All addenda, change orders and other forms of contract document modifications require proper sealing as described above.

Certificate of Need (CON) Requirements Due to changes in the Florida statutes regarding Certificate of Need review, many projects no longer require a Certificate of Need, exemption or non-reviewable letters from the Agency. In general, projects that will add some types of new beds such as hospital rehab beds or nursing home beds or certain services (such as pediatric open heart surgery, pediatric cardiac catheterization, organ transplant, comprehensive medical rehab) and all new facilities still require a valid Certificate of Need or exemption letter from the Agency before plan review can commence. Other projects involving outpatient services, adult open heart surgery, adult cardiac catheterization, obstetrical services, equipment replacement, elimination of safety hazards, or modifications or additions to the physical plant not directly related to patient care no longer require any letter or review by the Agency for Certificate of Need purposes. Please visit the Agency’s Certificate of Need and Financial Analysis website at: http://www.ahca.myflorida.com/MCHQ/CON_FA/index.shtml. For further information, please contact the Office of Certificate of Need for information at (850) 412-4346 or write to the Agency for Health Care Administration, Office of Certificate of Need, 2727 Mahan Drive Tallahassee, FL 32308 or send them a fax at (850) 922-6964.

Chapter 59A-26, F.A.C (Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled); and Chapter 59A-5, F.A.C. (Ambulatory Surgical Centers). Copies of the applicable rules are available from the Department of State, Bureau of Administrative Codes, RA Gray Building, 500 S. Bronough St., Tallahassee, FL 32399-0250, and Attention: Liz Cloud (850-245-6270). All facility plans and construction must also comply with the physical plant requirements of the Florida Building Code, Chapter 4, Sections 449, Hospitals, 450, Nursing Homes, and 451, Ambulatory Surgical Centers. The architects and engineers of this office are available to answer any questions concerning health care facilities. As noted, schematic plans and preliminary plans can be walked through and thus will receive an immediate review. A signed letter with comments will be available within 14 days after review. Construction documents, when properly signed, sealed and dated and the plan review fee has been received, will be reviewed and approved or not approved as appropriate, within 60 days from the date of the complete submission. Subsequent revised documents are subject to the same 60-day time period. If there is no response from this office after 60 days have elapsed from the date of receipt, the drawings are approved by default. However, all comments must be answered before final approval of the project may be granted. Once the construction documents are approved, the facility has one year to begin construction. If construction has not commenced in one year, the project is considered closed and all drawings must be resubmitted for another plan review. Upon completion of the project, a complete set of legible record drawings (As Built drawings) shall be submitted to this office. Upon receipt of the record drawings, all previously submitted drawings and specifications will be discarded and only the record drawings will be stored in our data bank for a period of five (5) years. If no “As Built” drawings are received, one set of the first submitted construction documents and project file will be retained for the archival period. Early foundation, site work, and demolition plans approval Construction of the project cannot commence until final construction documents have been reviewed and approved by the Office of Plans and Construction. Approval to begin foundation, site work, structural frame, and or demolition work only may be approved prior to final construction document approval if the following items are submitted: •
