How do I increase the number of licensed beds?

Licensed bed increases can be requested by filling out and submitting a “Change in Status to the Assisted Living Facility Licensed Resident Bed Capacity or Licensed Rooms” form, along with the fee of $106 per additional bed. The fee may be prorated. The form is available at http://www.adsa.dshs.gov/professional/default.htm.

Before the licensed bed capacity may be increased, you must: (1) obtain from Department of Health, Construction Review Services a review and approval of additional rooms or beds, and related auxiliary spaces, if not previously reviewed and approved; and (2) ensure the increased licensed bed capacity does not exceed the maximum facility capacity as determined by the department.
