Certificate of Need (CON)

A certificate of need (CON) is a legal document that is required in a number of states before proposed acquisitions, expansions, or facility creation. A federal or state regulatory agency must approve the need within the community for new health care facilities. This limits competition and makes existing centers more desirable.
