For Patients & Visitors

Serving Our Communities in Mississippi Since 1969

Since 1969, Southwest Health System has remained a staunch example of excellence in providing top-tier healthcare for small communities. Our doctors are trained, experienced, and excellent in their fields-with the same education and accolades as medical professionals working at hospitals in much larger metropolitan areas. The difference is simply their decision to live, work, and raise their families in McComb, Mississippi. Our award-winning Mississippi hospital is proud to serve our patients and our communities with excellence, professionalism, and compassion.
