Certificate of Need Services

Platt HMC is a regional healthcare planning firm with full service capabilities in CON application, opposition and expert testimony. Our flexible services are based on best practices we've observed and refined for 30 years in the field.

CON Application — Platt HMC's proprietary CON application development system ensures a smoother process and better quality of work. For many clients, we manage the entire process, coordinating not only with the client team, but also with external resources, from attorneys to architects. Our regulatory background allows us to identify and address potential hurdles early in the process.

CON Opposition — From our knowledge of and experience with CON requirements, we are able to quickly assess competitive applications by identifying weaknesses and technical mistakes, and then credibly document our client's position. Our work ensures standing and lays the foundation for potential appeal.

Expert Testimony — Whether hired by the applicant or appellant, we present testimony in an extremely clear, direct and engaging manner. Kathy Platt is qualified as an expert in Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama on matters of healthcare planning, finance and CON issues.

In addition to these CON services, we have been involved in drafting, commenting on and testifying about legislation, proposed rules and various planning documents issued by state agencies.
