Single Suite Surgical Practices Now Required to Become Licensed as Surgery Centers

January 16, 2018

Governor Christie just signed A-4995/S-287 into law, requiring registered surgical practices to become licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health as an ambulatory surgical center (“ASC”). Existing surgical practices must apply for an ASC license within one year, and those that are accredited or certified by CMS will be exempt from the current physical plant standards.  All prior surgical practices will be exempt from licensing fees and the ambulatory care facility assessment.
