Effective December 1, 2010, the State Hospital Review and Planning Council (SHRPC ) was consolidated with the Public Health Council to create the Public Health and Health Planning Council (PHHPC). The SHRPC was charged with making recommendations to the Public Health Council concerning applications to establish or transfer ownership of health care facilities and home care agencies. The Council's powers and duties were set forth in Article 29, Section 2904 of the Public Health Law. It was also responsible for making recommendations to the Commissioner of Health concerning major facility construction projects, service changes, and equipment acquisitions. In addition, the SHRPC adopted regulations, subject to the approval of the Commissioner of Health, governing health care facility operational and structural standards and reimbursement.
