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

 

 

  • Vicksburg Health Care, LLC, d/b/a River Region Health System
  • Vicksburg, Mississippi
  • Construction of River Region Medical Office Building

 

Vicksburg Health Care, LLC, d/b/a River Region Health System has received Certificate of Need (CON) authority for the construction of a medical office building on its hospital campus that will relocate physician office space and outpatient therapy services. The proposed project will comprise approximately 66,812 square feet of space.

The total capital expenditure for this project is $13,245,099.

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 30, 2014, at the MSDH offices in Jackson.
