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

University of Mississippi Medical Center - Grenada
Grenada, Mississippi
Establishment of Swing-Bed Services

The University of Mississippi Medical Center, d/b/a University of Mississippi Medical Center – Grenada received Certificate of Need (CON) authority on Tuesday to establish swing-bed services at its Grenada facility. The project will not include any new construction, renovation or additional staff, but will utilize 20 currently licensed beds for the swing-bed program.

The total capital expenditure for this project is $25,000.

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.
