Healthcare Facility Construction                                       

Final Plan Review of Minor Projects

Healthcare Licensing and Surveys (HLS) has implemented a procedural change to help sustain the workload and keep the healthcare construction plans review and inspections processes moving forward.  For minor projects, the final plan review by HLS will be optional rather than required.  Minor projects are those which will not affect 50 percent or more of a smoke compartment; not affect 50 percent or more of the building; and not affect more than 4,500 square feet of the entire facility.  Click here for more details on exercising this option.

Forms and Policies: Third-Party Plan Review and Inspection

Healthcare facility owners have the option of either utilizing the Department or an approved third-party plan reviewer and/or interim inspector (at the facility’s expense).  Facilities are not required to utilize third-party plan reviewers and/or interim inspectors.  If a facility chooses to have the Department conduct their plan review and/or interim inspections, these will be prioritized by order of receipt in the Healthcare Licensing and Surveys office.

Some Wyoming municipalities have requested jurisdiction over healthcare facility construction.  Whenever possible, these requests, which apply only to final plan reviews and inspections related to the International Building Codes, have been granted.  The option to use a third-party reviewer and/or interim inspector does not apply in those jurisdictions.  The Department will continue to review and approve all preliminary plan submissions.  In addition, the Department will continue to perform all final licensure and Life Safety Code inspections.  Click here for a PDF list of jurisdictions delegated plan review and inspection responsibilities.
