HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg has been given state approval to build a freestanding facility for hospice care.

The Mississippi State Department of Health issued a certificate of need for the project in June. Mississippi requires a CON in a process designed to avoid duplication of health care services and control costs.

The 20,000-square-foot building will be operated by Asbury Hospice House.

The project will cost $6.4 million.
