2017 Certificate of Need Annual Health Care Facility Reports

The following health care facilities are required to complete an annual Certificate of Need Health Care Facility Report:

  • Ambulatory Surgical Centers

  • Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) and Hospitals

  • Home Health Agencies, and

  • Long-Term Care Facilities

The Department of Public Health and Human Services has made all annual Certificate of Need health care facility reports available on-line. It is suggested that you first print the blank report and fill in the questions before completing the online version. The online reports have a new format this year. The links to the instructions and blank report form can be found below and on the first screen of the online reports. *PLEASE NOTE:  THE NEW SYSTEM WILL TIME OUT AFTER A PERIOD OF INACTIVITY AND DATA COULD BE LOST IF THIS HAPPENS.

The ability of the department to keep records on health care facilities is essential. The information collected each year is accessed by many people across the state and the nation. Data is utilized by the Certificate of Need Program to determine patient need in communities around the state. Because the information in this survey may affect the health care services in your community, it is important to be as accurate as possible. In addition, State of Montana law requires that health care facilities supply such information.
