  • On January 12, 2018, Governor Christie signed into law an amendment to the law governing single operating room registered surgical practices. Under the new law, a registered surgical practice will be required to apply, within a year after enactment of this legislation, to become licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health as an ambulatory surgical center. However, the new law also provides registered surgical practices with certain waivers and provides some flexibility to permit the merger of registered surgical practices with existing ambulatory surgery centers or other registered surgical practices.
