How to comment on a CON application
The Department reviews comments on CON applications from interested stakeholders concerning the certificate of need review criteria: public need, character and competence of the operator, and financial feasibility. Comments concerning issues that are unrelated to these review criteria, such as zoning or historic preservation, are not considered.
There are two ways to comment on a CON application:
You may submit written comments to either address below:
- Bureau of Project Management
Division of Health Facility Planning
New York State Department of Health
Corning Tower - Room 1842
Empire State Plaza
Albany, New York 12237
Please identify the application in question by name and application number and provide a concise statement, limiting your comments to the relevant CON review criteria. Commencing with applications distributed for review on or after August 1, 2009, comments received more than 20 days after the date the application in question is distributed may not be considered, unless there are extenuating circumstances that would justify an extension of the deadline.
