Mississippi State Department of Health

The Division of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification is the Mississippi regulatory agency responsible for licensing hospitals, nursing homes, personal care homes, home health agencies, ambulatory surgical facilities, birthing centers, abortion facilities, hospices, psychiatric residential treatment facilities, prescribed pediatric extended care facilities, intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities, and pediatric skilled nursing facilities.

This division is also responsible for certifying health care facilities for participation in Medicare and Medicaid programs. Since the division requires health facilities to be in compliance with state and federal standards, the level of care delivered is continually reviewed and upgraded so that patients and residents can be better protected from abuse and neglect.
