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

University of Mississippi Medical Center

University of Mississippi Medical Center has received Certificate of Need authority for the renovation of the surgical short stay unit on the campus of the existing hospital in Jackson. The proposed project involves the renovation of a total of 17,675 square feet, including 30 up-to-23-hour recovery spaces for the surgical unit.


Jeff Anderson Regional Medical Center
Meridian, Mississippi
Acquisition of MRI Equipment & Establishment of MRI Services

Capital expenditure: $3,684,900

Jeff Anderson Regional Medical Center has received Certificate of Need authority for the acquisition of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment and the establishment of MRI services.

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 November 19, 2009, at the Mississippi State Department of Health offices in Jackson.
