Jackson, Miss. – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announces the issuance of a Certificate of Need (CON) for the following projects in Vicksburg and Louisville.

 
  • Vicksburg Healthcare, LLC
    Vicksburg, Mississippi
    Cost Overrun to CON #R-0871 (CON Review #HG-MOB-0913-012), Construction of River Region Medical Office Building

    Vicksburg Healthcare, LLC received Certificate of Need (CON) authority for the cost overrun to CON #R-0871 (CON Review #HG-MOB-0913-012) for the construction of a medical office building for River Region Health Systems.

    RCG Mississippi, Inc., d/b/a RCG Louisville received Certificate of Need (CON) authority to repair its 5,300 square foot Winston County facility due to extensive damage caused by an EF4 tornado in April 2014. After repairs are completed, the project will also include the addition of 1,565 square feet of space to replace the remaining four stations and accommodate four new ESRD (end stage renal disease) stations, providing a total of 21 ESRD stations.

    The total capital expenditure for this project is $1,483,261.

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. Since then, 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 March 26, 2015, at the MSDH offices in Jackson.

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