Jackson, Miss. – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announces the issuance of a Certificate of Need (CON) for the following project:
Neshoba County General Hospital
Amendment and Cost Overrun to R-0879 (CON Review Number: HG-MOB-0614-009) Construction of a Medical Office Building
Neshoba County General Hospital received Certificate of Need (CON) authority for an amendment and cost overrun to R-0879 (CON Review Number: HG-MOB-0614-009), the construction of a medical office building. The amendment and cost overrun is due to a revised project site design, relocation and cost estimate.
The original capital expenditure for this project was $2,693,000. The additional capital expenditure is $1,556,252, making the revised capital expenditure for this project $4,249,252.
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 June 25, 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.
