Agency History

The Bureau of State Health Planning and Resource Development (formerly the Division of State Health Planning and Resources Development) of the Texas Department of Health conducts health development and planning activities for the state. Specific duties include the development and implementation of a state health plan, the development of a health data system, data collection and dissemination, and assisting the Statewide Health Coordinating Council (SHCC) with its functions. The SHCC prepares the annual health plan and advises the Health Department on the plan's implementation, including the planning and development of health care or medical facilities. Another adjunct group assisting the Bureau in carrying out its responsibilities is the Hospital Advisory Council, whose duties have included advising the Bureau on medical facilities planning and construction, and administering the Hospital Equipment Financing Program.
