Your cooperation is appreciated. CERTIFICATE OF NEED HEARINGS Although Governor Beshear’s March 6, 2020 declaration of a State of Emergency in response to COVID-19 is no longer in effect, certificate of need hearings will continue to be conducted via teleconference due to limited availability of conference room space.

It cannot yet be determined how long this will take. Hearings will be scheduled in approximately the order in which applications were filed. HSAHB will contact parties regarding scheduling in the approximate order that applications were placed on public notice.
