Jackson, Miss. - The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) announces the issuance of a Certificate of Need (CON) for the following project:
Wound Care Management, LLC d/b/a Medcentrics
Provision of Digital Subtraction Angiography
On September 28, 2017, the State Health Officer issued a Certificate of Need (CON) for Wound Care Management, LLC d/b/a Medcentrics to provide in-office digital subtraction angiography (DSA) services (limb salvage program) to patients in and around Vicksburg. Pursuant to an order issued by the Honorable Patricia Wise of the Hinds County Chancery Court, that CON was vacated and a new certificate has been issued today.
The total proposed capital expenditure for this project is $317,487.
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.
