Health Care Facilities License Renewals

Attention Facilities! Those in search of nursing staff (certified nurse assistants, home health aides, hemodialysis technicians, licensed vocational nurses or registered nurses), we encourage you to register with CalJOBS. Here you will gain access to industry data, labor market information and job applicants for your facility. You can also post job openings online.

The Centralized Applications Branch is responsible for issuing license renewals to facilities with an existing license.

A License Renewal application with an invoice is distributed to the licensee 120 days prior to the license expiration date.

Pursuant to Health and Safety Code section 1267(a)(1), application for renewal of a license accompanied by the necessary fee shall be filed with the state department not less than 30 days prior to the expiration date. Failure to make a timely renewal shall result in expiration of the license.
