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

2nd Generation Healthcare, LLC d/b/a The Grove
Columbia, Mississippi
Relocation and Addition of Nursing Home Beds

The 2nd Generation Healthcare, LLC d/b/a The Grove nursing home received Certificate of Need (CON) authority today for relocation of six beds from Pearl River Nursing Home in Poplarville to its facility in Columbia. The transfer of these beds will bring The Grove’s total bed count to 86.

The total capital expenditure for this project is $410,000.

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.

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