Jackson, Miss. – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announces the issuance of a Certificate of Need (CON) for the following project:
Bio-Medical Applications Mississippi, Inc., d/b/a Fresenius Medical Care Mid Mississippi
Expansion of Stations at Existing ESRD Facility
Bio-Medical Applications Mississippi, Inc., d/b/a Fresenius Medical Care Mid Mississippi received Certificate of Need (CON) authority on Monday for the expansion of its existing End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) facility by 11 stations, bringing the total number of stations to 25. The proposed expansion will not require renovation or construction; the facility already has the space and capacity to handle the 11-station increase.
The total capital expenditure for this project is $30,244.06.
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.
Public notices prior to CON approval are available online at HealthyMS.com/con.
The department’s staff analysis for each Certificate of Need application is published online at HealthyMS.com/con.
