Public Hearings

Welcome to the Public Hearing Project Calendar for the
Division of Certificate of Public Need (DCOPN).

As a courtesy to Virginia residents, this site will provide information on the scheduling of public hearings for DCOPN projects and will be updated as changes in scheduling arise.  Per section 12VAC5-220-230 D of the Regulations governing the Certificate of Public Need process, DCOPN shall give notice of a scheduled public hearing in a newspaper of general circulation in such county or city wherein a project is proposed or a contiguous county or city at least nine days prior to such public hearing. Notice of future public hearings will continue to be advertised per the Regulations and on this site. However, this site will not maintain a schedule for public hearings conducted by the Health Systems Agency of Northern Virginia (HSANV). HSANV is a non-profit organization that works toward the balanced and orderly development of health care facilities and services in the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, Manassas Park and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William.

Any questions regarding public hearings conducted by HSANV should be directed to
