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

Rush Foundation Hospital
Meridian, Mississippi
Amendment/Cost Overrun to CON #R-0683 (Third Floor Renovation)

Rush Foundation Hospital has received Certificate of Need authority for the amendment/cost overrun on CON #R-0683 for the renovation of the hospital’s third floor. The original project involves 33,316 square feet of renovation on the third floor with the intention of redesigning the women’s health wing to meet current standards.

The additional capital expenditure for this project is $1,871,667, making the total capital expenditure $7,700,432.

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 1,300 Certificate of Need applications have been reviewed, representing total capital expenditures of approximately $4 billion. The next Certificate of Need monthly meeting will be March 26, 2009, at the MSDH offices in Jackson.

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