The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) is modifying its system to give hospitals the ability to change the name and email of their points of contact.  

To date, a hospital’s point of contact has been whomever was on the application originally submitted to OSHPD, even if it was a number of years prior. CHA requested that OSHPD improve its system to allow hospitals to update their information to ensure OSHPD information gets to hospitals’ current and correct points of contact at hospitals. 

OSHPD has announced that, beginning early next year, it will have a new feature in its eServices Portal that will allow hospitals to electronically add, remove, or update information. 

In the meantime, it has set up email inboxes hospitals can use to request changes to their contacts. OSHPD will then make the updates  on behalf of hospitals. The email inboxes are set up by OSHPD field office; Northern California hospitals should email, and Southern California hospitals should email
