This Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 4-510-01 provides mandatory policies and procedures for programming, planning, design, and construction throughout the life-cycle of Military Medical Facilities, also referenced as Medical Treatment Facilities
(MTFs), including medical and dental treatment facilities, medical training facilities, medical research facilities, veterinary facilities in the Military Health System (MHS) and/or other facility projects specifically designated to the MHS by an appropriate project authorization document. In the event of conflict with any other UFC, the provisions of this document take precedence. Federal legislation, Executive Orders (EOs), DoD Directives, Instructions, and selected technical data, publications, and standards (latest or most current editions) are referenced in the text by basic designation only and form a part of these criteria to the extent required by these references. Chapter 1 states policy and responsibilities, and the succeeding Chapters describe procedures/process and related medical-specific criteria.
