Description

With a continued emphasis on progressive care, Natchez Regional Medical Center has grown to keep pace with the changing needs of patients and the rapidly advancing technology of modern health care. Natchez Regional Medical Center opened as a nonprofit hospital on April 18, 1960 under the name of Jefferson Davis Memorial Hospital. The name change occurred in January 1993 to establish the hospital’s position as a referral center for the five Mississippi counties and two Louisiana parishes it serves. Owned by Adams County, the hospital is committed to serving the healthcare needs of its 94,007 population base of citizens.

As a regional medical center, it is our responsibility to not only keep up with technological advances, but to anticipate and stay one step ahead. We are a full-service hospital offering comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for acute, sub acute and ambulatory care. Licensed for 179 beds, our reputation for delivering high quality health care is validated by our accreditation with the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
