Mississippi State University and Premier Radiology, P.A., have received Certificate of Need authority for acquisition of therapeutic radiation equipment and offering of therapeutic radiation services. The proposed project will be located at The Cancer Center, 500 Mallory Lane, in Starkville.

Amendment/Additional Capital Expenditure on CON #R-0661 (Construction/Renovation & Relocation Project)
Additional capital expenditure: $30,039,306
Total capital expenditure: $112,272,306

Mississippi Baptist Medical Center has received Certificate of Need authority for the amendment/additional capital expenditure on CON #R-0661 for a construction/renovation and relocation project. The original project involves construction of a 236,000 square-foot, seven-story tower west of the hospital and the renovation of 38,000 square feet of space on the second and fourth floors of the existing hospital.

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 prevent unnecessary duplication of health resources; to provide cost containment; to improve the health of Mississippi residents; and to increase accessibility, acceptability, continuity and quality of health services.

The Mississippi State Department of Health 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 April 30, 2009, at the Mississippi State Department of Health offices in Jackson.
