Jackson, Miss. – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announces the issuance of a Certificate of Need (CON) for the following project:

Renal Care Group Mississippi d/b/a RCG-Starkville
Starkville, Mississippi
Amendment to CON #R-0772 (Relocation of RCG-Starkville)

Renal Care Group Mississippi d/b/a RCG-Starkville has received Certificate of Need authority for an amendment to CON #R-0772 (Relocation of RCG-Starkville) because the originally proposed site is no longer acceptable to the applicant’s patients and physicians. The proposed new location will be near 124 Eudora Welty Drive, which is less than one mile from the originally approved location.

The additional capital expenditure for this project is $232,059, making the total capital expenditure $1,414,718.

Mississippi's Certificate of Need process is a fundamental component of the state's health planning and health regulatory activities. In managing the Certificate of Need process, the Department seeks to improve the health of Mississippi residents; to increase accessibility, acceptability, continuity and quality of health services; to prevent unnecessary duplication of health resources; and to provide some cost containment.

The MSDH has administered the Certificate of Need program since July 1986. During that period, more than 1,400 Certificate of Need applications have been reviewed, representing total capital expenditures of approximately $5 billion. The next Certificate of Need monthly meeting will be February 24, 2011, at the MSDH offices in Jackson.

The department’s staff analysis for each Certificate of Need application is published online at www.HealthyMS.com.
