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

Tallahatchie General Hospital and Extended Care Facility
Charleston, Mississippi
Conversion of 9 Nursing Home Beds to Acute Care Beds

Tallahatchie General Hospital and Extended Care Facility has received Certificate of Need authority for the conversion of nine nursing home beds to acute care beds at the hospital. The beds will be located in the acute care wing of the hospital. There will be no change in the total number of authorized beds at the facility.

The total capital expenditure for this project is $20,000.

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. The next Certificate of Need monthly meeting will be December 22, 2011, at the MSDH offices in Jackson.

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