Jackson, Miss. – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announces the issuance of a Certificate of Need (CON) for the following project:
Natchez Regional Medical Center
Re-Establishment of Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization Services and Digital Subtraction Angiography Services
Natchez Regional Medical Center has received Certificate of Need authority for the re-establishment of diagnostic cardiac catheterization services and digital subtraction angiography services. These services have not been offered at the facility since 2007.
The total capital expenditure for this project is $0.
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 November 18, 2010, at the MSDH offices in Jackson.
