Every human life is a sacred gift from God. At St. Dominic’s, our team of caregivers views each individual as special—to be treated with the utmost respect. No matter the phase of life, our goal is to provide our patients with exceptional care for all aspects of the human existence—body, mind and spirit. We strive to not only provide care for the sick but also offer education and wellness services to our community in order to improve the health status of those around us and eliminate risk factors for more serious health problems.
God has called us to administer compassion and health care in His name to the people of Mississippi. Living the Mission established by the founding Sisters, the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois, and continued today by the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady, is at the heart of the care we provide. We fulfill this effort through advanced medical services in a state-of-the-art hospital and outpatient center, through caring for older adults in a continuing care retirement facility, through our primary and urgent care services, and into the community through a number of wellness and outreach programs.
Whether your healthcare needs are immediate or you are exploring our services and our purpose for when they are, we hope that you will choose St. Dominic’s for you and your family.
