Licensing and Certification Program information

Field Operations Branch (District Offices)

The Field Operations Branch comprises of 20 district offices throughout the state. Each office is responsible for the oversight of licensed health care facilities and agencies. Our district offices regularly survey facilities and investigate complaints to determine compliance with state laws and regulations. Our survey teams also consider compliance with federal regulations if the facilities receive Medicare or Medi-Cal reimbursement.

To file a complaint against a health care facility licensed by the California Department of Public Health, please call or write the Center for Health Care Quality, Licensing and Certification District Office nearest you.
