PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) - The Neshoba General Hospital in Philadelphia has been given state approval to add a new medical building to its campus.

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

Neshoba General will build a 22,000-square-foot building with primary care and specialty doctors along with nurse practitioners and laboratory and x-ray services.

The project will cost $2.69 million.
