On Feb. 22, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced in All Facilities Letter 21-10 that its Centralized Applications Branch (CAB) will begin a paperless process for issuing health care facility licenses, starting March 1.  

The licenses will be issued by email as a PDF instead of mailing a hard copy to the hospital. The email will be sent to the hospital contact reported to CDPH. CHA has asked CDPH for clarification on which hospital contact this will be and will provide additional information via CHA News as it becomes available.
