  4. NYP Regulatory Portfolio Profile • Basic Building Information • Total # Buildings: 48 • Total Square Feet: 7.6 M • Total Beds: 2,331

  5. Safety: Vast majority of in-patients are incapable of self-preservation and rely on the building features/systems to protect them from the risks of fire & smoke. Regulatory: Hospitals must be designed to protect patients, staff and visitors. Requirements are driven by various agencies: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) New York State Department of Health (DOH) The Joint Commission (TJC) Fire Department of New York/White Plains Department of Buildings (DOB) Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Background & Significance

  6. Objectives Establish Roles/Responsibilities Define which projects require a life safety code analysis Describe the various life safety elements beyond the typical project envelope Review the process to prepare and submit life safety plans to NYP Understand the importance of delivering a code compliant facility

  7. Roles/Responsibilities Facilities Operations Regulatory Compliance PM (FD&C) ORPPD A/E Team CM/GC Stonehill Taylor Architects
