“I'm so proud to be a strong supporter of Southwest Health!” — Ronnie Wilkinson

This past September 30, Ronnie Wilkinson started having chest pains. “I thought at first it was just acid reflux, which I’ve had before,” says Ronnie. “But then I became nauseated and started sweating.” When Ronnie told his wife, Pigeon, that his jaw was hurting, her response was immediate and firm. “Get in the car,” said the retired RN with 43 years of experience. “We’re going to the hospital—now!”

For both Ronnie and Pigeon, the decision to go to Southwest Health was a nobrainer. “If you’re having chest pains and live around here, you need to stay close to home.” Ronnie says. “Time is critical when you‘re having a heart attack or stroke. And here in McComb, we’re so fortunate to have the Cardiovascular Institute at Southwest Health, which makes it the premier heart hospital in Mississippi.”

An EKG revealed Ronnie was having a mild heart attack. Dr. Christos Kasapis, an interventional cardiology specialist, performed an angioplasty to open Ronnie’s clogged artery with a mesh coil, also called a stent. Ronnie then spent 48 hours in the hospital’s ICU. “The care I received was excellent,” Ronnie says. “The nurses and staff were on top of everything.”

Soon after his heart attack, Ronnie started cardiac rehab at Southwest Health— three one-hour sessions each week for a period of 12 weeks. “The staff really took care of me,” Ronnie says. “I know I’m in good hands here. I just want people in our community to stop and think about what a blessing it is to have a local hometown hospital like ours.”

Awards & Recognitions

Southwest Health 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 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.
