Organizational Note

The National Advisory Commission on Health Facilities was established February 28, 1967, by the President as announced in his Message to Congress on Education and Health. It was a Presidential advisory committee, which terminated upon submission of its final report in December 1968.

The Commission was established to study national needs for a total system of health facilities, including hospitals, extended care facilities, nursing homes, long-term care institutions, and clinics. The National Advisory Commission also considered the future of the Hill-Burton program of federal funding for construction of hospitals and health-related facilities.

The Commission emphasized the need for a joint public-private partnership in replacing the fragmented system of providing medical services with organized community systems of comprehensive health care available to all and suggested steps leading toward this goal.

The Commission consisted of 15 members appointed by the President who represented a cross section of state and local government, health professionals, and consumer interest groups.
