Healthcare


Greater Jackson's access to advanced medical technology resources is unparalleled. The health care community has made a place for itself among the leading centers for the health sciences and practice of medicine and established superior standards of medical care, The health care resources are clustered around 18 hospital facilities which include a major teaching and research center, a state psychiatric hospital, a large Department of Veterans Affairs facility, and nine other private non-profit and for-profit institutions with a combined bed space of approximately 5,500.

The men and women of Greater Jackson's health care community, which includes over 46,000 health professionals and 1200 businesses related to health services, collectively represent virtually ever specialty and sub-specialty dealing with the fall spectrum of human disease and disability. Many of them received their training at educational centers in the Jackson area. The University of Mississippi Medical Center serves as the flagship institution with its Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing and Health Related Professions, The Hinds Community College Nursing/Allied Health Center works closely with area students and health care providers to develop highly skilled professionals to meet the needs of an ever changing industry,

Jackson's reputation as a center for health care excellence is enhanced by the fact that medical costs are lower than those in other cities with which Jackson frequently finds itself compared. Among Sunbelt cities offering care comparable to that found in Jackson, including Memphis, Birmingham, Dallas, New Orleans and Houston, the average charge for inpatient medical services is lower in Jackson, based upon Medicare diagnostic related groups. Health care provided in Jackson is quite a value.
