The Mississippi Hospital Association (MHA) is proud to announce its inaugural Outstanding Mississippi Small Rural Hospital Award recipient, Winston Medical Center in Louisville.
“For almost 60 years, Winston Medical Center has made tremendous strides in advancing rural health care in Louisville and Mississippi,” said Timothy Moore, President and CEO of MHA. “The resilience and commitment to the community Winston Medical Center and its employees have shown following the 2014 tornado makes us especially proud to call them this year's winner.”
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.
