Certificate of Need (CON) Review

DASNY has a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Department of Health (DOH) that allows us to perform architectural drawing reviews associated with the Department’s Certificate of Need application process. By virtue of this MOU, health care providers certified under Article 28 of the Public Health Law may enter into a contract to have DASNY review their drawings and provide a recommendation to DOH regarding the conformance of the drawings with applicable codes, rules and regulations. DOH will accept DASNY’s recommendation in lieu of the review currently performed by internal DOH staff.

Using DASNY to perform this function gives health care providers an option to receive an expedited review of their design drawings that potentially can lead to an earlier start date for a construction project. DASNY charges a flat fee for this service based on the construction value of the project.
