OSHPD Update — August 2020#

Watch a special edition of the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development’s (OSHPD) Monthly News Update as Acting Director Marko Mijic highlights OSHPD’s work on its core mission in the face of a pandemic.

While OSHPD assists in the fight against COVID-19, it continues to ensure healthcare facilities are safe, increase access to health professionals in underserved areas, and provide data to stakeholders and government to improve health care access, quality, and policy development.

In our video Director Mijic talks about OSHPD’s work on creating hospital bed capacity for surges in COVID-19 patients, while at the same continuing to conduct plan review and field observation services for hospital construction projects. He also highlights new data programs, such as the Health Care Payments Data Program and Hospital Supplier Diversity Program.
