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

 

Harrison HMA, LLC d/b/a Gulf Coast Medical Center
Biloxi, Mississippi
Construction/Relocation and Replacement of Gulf Coast Medical Center

Harrison HMA, LLC d/b/a Gulf Coast Medical Center has received Certificate of Need (CON) authority for the construction, relocation and replacement of the existing Gulf Coast Medical Center, currently located 300 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. The proposed project will relocate the 144-bed acute care facility four miles north of the coastline in Biloxi. The relocated facility will be known as The Hospital at Cedar Lake.

The proposed capital expenditure for this project is $133,322,098.

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. Since then, 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 January 31, 2012, at the MSDH offices in Jackson.

The department's staff analysis for each Certificate of Need application is published online at www.HealthyMS.com.
