Health Facilities Advisory Committee

The HFAC is established for the purpose of reviewing, evaluating, developing, and issuing criteria requirements used in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of IHS health care facilities and staff quarters. The HFAC's major thrust is in developing generic standards to provide continuity and consistency in IHS health care facilities. The standards will minimize the need to "reinvent the wheel." Recommendations by the HFAC will be documented and based on past experience, sound judgment, deductive risk management, and suitability for standardization in the IHS arena.
