Healthcare

North Mississippi Medical Center-West Point enjoys tremendous support from our community, dedicated physicians and staff, and an affiliation with one of the nation's leading health care organizations, North Mississippi Health Services. NMMC-West Point is a full-service, Joint Commission accredited, 60-bed medical/surgical facility. This private, not-for-profit hospital opened its doors in 1985 and continues to grow.

North Mississippi Health Services is the largest non-urban health service company in the United States. The West Point hospital is the largest of all the community hospitals.

Unique Design

NMMC - West Point's remarkable design was inspired by the history and culture of this charming Southern community. The entire structure is built around a central atrium filled with greenery. Interestingly, this configuration was inspired by a similar architectural idea used to build the antebellum Waverly Plantation House located nearby.

Medical-surgical patient rooms are entered from a foyer area and open onto a private terrace. Rooms are "nested," which means four to six rooms are clustered around each nursing unit. This design reduces walking distance, allows nurses to view several patients from a central point, and provides closer access to medical equipment.

Surgery & Intensive Care

Surgeons utilize four operating suites for a wide array of cases, including general, orthopedic and obstetrics-gynecology. The Same Day Surgery Unit features six rooms for outpatient surgery patients to rest before and after their procedure, as well as two endoscopy suites.

The six-bed Intensive Care Unit offers invasive and non-invasive monitoring for medical and surgical patients. The hospital also has 10 licensed swing beds for patients who need extended care.

Women's Pavilion

The Women's Pavilion provides family-centered maternity services in a home-like environment. Mothers labor, deliver, and recover in the same comfortable room. The nursery is equipped to care for healthy newborns as well as provide immediate stabilization of infants requiring intensive care. Childbirth education is available for expectant parents, and breastfeeding assistance is provided.

Emergency & Outpatient Services

NMMC-West Point offers 24-hour emergency services at the Level IV Trauma Center, as well as a paramedic-level ambulance service.

Outpatient services include cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs, as well as physical, occupational and speech-language therapy. Cardiac stress tests and holter monitoring are also offered.
