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

Neshoba County General Hospital and Nursing Home
Philadelphia, Mississippi
Relocation and Addition of 15 Long-Term Care Beds

Neshoba County General Hospital and Nursing Home has received Certificate of Need authority for the relocation and addition of 15 long-term care, skilled nursing facility beds from the former H.C. Watkins Extended Care Facility in Clarke County. The proposed project will not require additional personnel, new construction or any renovation of the existing facility.

The total capital expenditure for this project is $150,000.

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 1,400 Certificate of Need applications have been reviewed, representing total capital expenditures of approximately $5 billion. The next Certificate of Need monthly meeting will be December 17, 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.
