The Mississippi Hospital Association (MHA) is proud to announce its inaugural Outstanding Mississippi Small Rural Hospital Award recipient, North Sunflower Medical Center in Ruleville. The hospital was honored during a special ceremony at the hospital’s Beacon Wellness Center on September 13.
“We’re especially proud of this year’s winner,” said Timothy Moore, President and CEO of MHA. “Over the past 10 years, North Sunflower has made tremendous strides in advancing rural health care in Ruleville and Mississippi, and we’re excited to see what they do in the future.”
MHA’s Outstanding Mississippi Small Rural Hospital Award will recognize each year a rural hospital in the state with less than 100 beds that has improved access to health care or has launched innovative programs in their communities. Three criteria are considered:
- What has the hospital done to contribute to rural health in ways that go above and beyond?
- How have they demonstrated leadership and vision for rural health?
- What impact have their efforts had on rural health in their community?
A congratulatory video was created to recognize all of the staff at the hospital for their hard work.
