Health Care Services 

The Health Care Service (HCS) programs monitor the following services:

  • Solid organ transplantation
  • Bone marrow transplantation
  • Adult cardiac catheterization
  • Adult open heart surgery
  • Pediatric intensive care
  • Pediatric cardiac catheterization
  • Pediatric cardiovascular surgery
  • Operation of a linear accelerator
  • Operation of a gamma knife
  • Operation of cobalt radiation therapy unit

The HCS programs establish safety and quality of care standards for a provider of an HCS listed above. The quality rules set minimum standards that a provider of the service must meet in order to offer the service.

Process:
Notification to the director must be filed by a prospective service provider at least 30 days prior to initiating a new HCS or reactivating a discontinued or temporarily suspended HCS. The written notice must contain the name, address and telephone number of the facility where the HCS will be located, the type of HCS to be provided and the projected date of initiation of the HCS. An acknowledgement of receipt of the notification will be sent by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) with an HCS Notification Survey and Attestation of Compliance, which must be completed and returned to ODH prior to initiating the service. A revised Attestation of Compliance must be filed within 30 days of a change in the personnel signing a previously filed attestation. The program ensures compliance with the quality rules through self attestation of compliance by the service provider and site visits.

Enforcement:
Section 3701-84-05 of the Ohio Administrative Code provides for the director of health, upon discovery of a failure to comply with any requirement in the quality rules, to provide a reasonable amount of time to correct the violation, or impose a civil money penalty based on the severity of the violation.
