“I found the care I need right here at my hometown hospital!” — Peggy Lacheny

Every eight weeks, Peggy Lacheny (right) had to make the long hour-and-a-half drive from Osyka to New Orleans to receive infusions for her severe asthma. Fortunately, Stephanie Barnes (left), the RN Infusion Director at Southwest Health, found a better way. She called Peggy’s doctor in New Orleans and told her about the Southwest Outpatient Infusion Center. “Now my husband, Randy, and I only have to drive 20 minutes,” says Peggy. “When I get my asthma infusion, I feel like a wind-up toy. I can just go and go and go!” “Patients who were traveling to Jackson, Hattiesburg, and even Atlanta for their infusion therapy are now coming here,” says Stephanie. “It’s just so much more convenient.” Infusion therapy can include blood transfusions, immunotherapy, antibiotics, fluid replacements, long-term therapies, and iron infusions. People with multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, infectious disease, Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, immune deficiency, osteoporosis, and more can benefit from the therapy. Stephanie and Peggy have known each other for many years. In fact, Stephanie was Peggy’s nurse when she had outpatient cataract surgery at Southwest Health. “God sends angels into your life and Stephanie has definitely been one for me!” says Peggy. “The care she gives is fantastic, just like this hospital and all of the people who work there!”

We Go to Great Heights for Your Health

Our mission is to lead the healthcare field in our region by providing excellent healthcare services for our community, while raising the healthcare standards in Southwest Mississippi as well as Louisiana. We want to serve the needs of our community, medical staff, employees, and-above all-our patients.

When you choose Southwest Health, you can have confidence that our priorities are straight. We are pleased to serve as your healthcare provider, no matter how short or long your stay. Our goal is to make your experience at Southwest Health as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

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.
