Steps You Must Take for Licensing and Compliance in Nevada >>>

Step 1 - Review the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 449 - MEDICAL AND OTHER RELATED FACILITIES:   

Step 2 -  Regardless of the type of facility, you must first go through the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health - Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (HCQC) to apply for a new license, change of name, change of owner, change of administrator, change of location, change of suite number, change of endorsement/certification or increase/decrease/change of category of beds.  To contact them please go to this website: or call them at (775) 685-1030 

Step 3 - Once HCQC has the documentation they require for license processing, their office will contact the Nevada State Fire Marshal Division (NSFM) to request a Fire/Life Safety Inspection and ultimately the issuance of a Certificate of Compliance (one of the requirements for licensing).  Upon receipt of a satisfactory Self-Inspection form and $22.00 fee submitted to our office a certificate of compliance will be issued.
