The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announces the issuance of a Certificate of Need (CON) for the following project:
Construction/Replacement/Relocation of Nursing Home from Hinds to Rankin County
Capital expenditure: $9,870,000
Community Place has received Certificate of Need authority for the construction/replacement/relocation of its nursing home from Hinds County to Rankin County. The proposed project will move the nursing home from an outdated facility in an undesirable, high-crime location, which will allow for better quality of care and life for clients.
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 May 28, 2009, at the Mississippi State Department of Health offices in Jackson.
