JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital has been given state approval to renovate 17,008 square feet of the first and second floors of its hospital to modernize operating room space.

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

The project costs $5.5 million.

St. Dominic officials say the updates are needed to comply with current codes and regulations.
