Overview: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ decision to adopt the facility and life safety code requirements in the 2012 editions of National Fire Protection Association 99 & 101 dramatically changed requirements for existing and new ASCs. Many new facilities will be significantly more expensive to develop, some existing buildings will no longer be acceptable for new ASCs, and all ASCs are now subject to a wide variety of additional requirements for a broad spectrum of issues. Examine the extent of the code changes, retroactive changes required in your ASC’s physical environment and top priorities for existing ASCs.
