Description

Many hospitals share a campus or even buildings with other hospitals or health care entities. The health care providers may share space, services, and even staff. Nevertheless, each must also comply independently with the Medicare Conditions of Participation for Hospitals. On May 3, 2019, CMS issued draft guidance on how co-located hospitals can organize shared elements while still demonstrating independent compliance. CMS is asking for comments on the draft by July 2, 2019. Hear from three CMS staff who oversaw development of the draft guidance and from an attorney experienced in representing hospitals.
