Brentwood's appeal unsuccessful

VICKSBURG — The Mississippi Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal of a decision by health officials to revoke approval for a project in Vicksburg by Brentwood Health Management.

The state Court of Appeals last year had upheld the revocation decision.

In 2001, the Mississippi Department of Health approved Brentwood’s plans for a $4-million facility in Vicksburg with 20 beds for treatment of child and adolescent psychiatric conditions and 60 beds for psychiatric residential treatment.

Brentwood had a year to complete the facility. Otherwise, Health Department approval would expire.

By 2007, the project had not been completed, according to court records, and the Health Department revoked its approval.

A Hinds County judge in 2008 sided with the Health Department.
