Change of Ownership or Location
A change of ownership (sale, whether of stock, title or assets, lease, discontinuance of operations) or premises terminates the license. An initial application is required.
The Department must be notified in writing within five working days when a facility is sold, leased, discontinued or moved to a new location.
Change in Capacity
An Assisted-Living Facility must not put into use more beds than the total number of beds for which the assisted-living facility is licensed. Changes in the use and location of beds may occur at any time without prior Departmental approval for licensure purposes. The facility must not locate more residents in a resident room than the capacity for which the room was originally approved.
Increase of beds
Notify the Department at least 30 working days prior to the date the Assisted-Living Facility wishes to increase the number of beds for which the facility is licensed.
If new construction is planned, submit construction plans for Department approval prior to any new construction affecting resident living and service portions of the facility. The Department will accept certification from an architect or engineer. Additional information can be found on the Facility Construction page here.
