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.

Starting in October, CON monthly meetings have been replaced with public notice before CON approval. Public notices are available online at HealthyMS.com/con. This change is being made on order to comply with new time requirements as set forth in Senate Bill 2661 from the 2016 Regular Legislative Session.

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