About FGI

About FGI, the Guidelines, and the HGRC


The Facility Guidelines Institute is a not-for-profit corporation founded to provide leadership and continuity to the Guidelines revision process. The Guidelines for Design and Construction documents are used by states to regulate health care facility design and construction, as code through adoption, as a basis for state written codes, as an adjunct to state codes, or for reference. The Health Guidelines Revision Committee (HGRC) is a multidisciplinary consensus body of clinicians, administrators, architects, engineers, and authorities having jurisdiction that is convened every four years to revise and update the Guidelines documents.
