Going Further So You Don't Have To.

Southwest Health System is proud to serve patients in Southwest Mississippi and Northern Louisiana with excellence, compassion, and dedication. Without our healthcare system, our patients would be forced to drive between 60 to 100 miles to receive an adequate level of care. We believe that small communities should still have access to the best healthcare, and our actions prove our dedication.

While many other health systems of our size have eventually been bought out or forced to file bankruptcy, Southwest Health System has remained at the forefront of cutting-edge medical care due to our teams' forward-thinking plans that ensure the development of a vital, growing, and-ultimately-long-lasting healthcare system for residents of our community. We are grateful for the leadership of our CEO, Norman Price, FACHE.
