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

North Mississippi Medical Center
Tupelo, Mississippi
Cost Overrun to CON #R-0804 (HG-RC-1109-030 West Bed-Tower Expansion and Renovation)

North Mississippi Medical Center received Certificate of Need (CON) authority for the cost overrun to CON #R-0804 (HG-RC-1109-030 West Bed-Tower Expansion and Renovation). The cost overrun is the end result of multiple changes resulting from actual cost compared with estimated cost.

The original capital expenditure for this project was $55,103,273. The additional capital expenditure is $3,940,979, making the revised capital expenditure total $59,044,252.

Tupelo, Mississippi
Establishment of Satellite ESRD Facility

Renal Care Group Tupelo, LLC, d/b/a RCG of Tupelo received Certificate of Need (CON) authority to establish a 10-station satellite End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) facility. The proposed facility is approximately 2.1 miles from the host site.

The total capital expenditure for this project is $12,250.00


Tippah County Hospital
Ripley, Mississippi
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Project

Tippah County Hospital received Certificate of Need (CON) authority for the acquisition or otherwise control of Magnetic Resonance Imaging equipment and the offering of mobile MRI services.

The total capital expenditure for this project is $12,250.00

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.

Starting in October, CON monthly meetings will be replaced with public notice before CON approval. Public notices are available online at HealthyMS.com/con. This change is being made on order to comply with new time requirements as set forth in Senate Bill 2661 from the 2016 Regular Legislative Session.

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