Notices/Updates

Effective July 1, 2018, the Agency discontinued the licensure program for health care risk managers. Each licensed hospital & ASC must continue to have a functioning risk management program and hire a qualified risk manager to oversee the program. The hospital & ASC’s governing board will be responsible for hiring a risk manager based on the education and experience requirements in subsection 395.0197(2), Florida Statutes (2018). The Agency will no longer require the listing of risk managers on hospital or ambulatory surgery center licensure application forms.
