Burn Center moving from Crossgates to CMMC

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Mississippi State Department of Health has issued a Certificate of Need (CON) to Jackson HMA, to relocated the JMS Burn Center from Crossgates River Oaks Hospital to Central Mississippi Medical Center (CMMC).

With more surgeons and specialists on-site, this will allow the facility to treat more severe burns as well as allow more patients to be treated in Mississippi without having to travel outside the state.

The cost for the move is just under $1.5-million.

Mississippi's Certificate of Need process is a fundamental component of the state's health planning and health regulatory activities.
