North Mississippi Medical Center, a 650-bed regional referral center in Tupelo, holds the distinction of being the largest, private, not-for-profit hospital in Mississippi and the largest non-metropolitan hospital in America. The medical center serves more than 730, 000 people in 24 counties in north Mississippi, northwest Alabama and portions of Tennessee. NMMC-Tupelo is affiliated with North Mississippi Health Services, a 2012 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award recipient.
Area residents have access to a medical staff representing more than 40 medical specialties, as well as centers of excellence in cardiac surgery, cardiology, research, neurology, neurosurgery, pulmonology, rehabilitation, cancer treatment, chemical dependency and neonatal programs. In addition, the NMMC Home Health Agency serves patients in 17 counties in north Mississippi and offers many complex and extremely high-tech procedures that can be performed in the home setting.
NMMC-Tupelo is designated as a Level II trauma center by the Mississippi State Department of Health. To receive this designation, facilities must offer a full range of trauma capabilities, including an Emergency Department, a full service surgical suite, intensive care unit and diagnostic imaging, as well as make a commitment to consistently meet national guidelines or standards in caring for trauma patients.
The NMMC hospitalist program has been recognized by The American Journal of Medicine for providing cost-efficient care to hospitalized patients. The program, which began in 1997, employs several internal medicine physicians who work together to provide daytime and nighttime coverage to hospitalized patients who do not have a primary care physician, or whose primary care physicians do not have hospital practices.
Patient satisfaction and quality of care are important at all North Mississippi Medical Clinics locations. The physicians and staff work to address patient complaints in a timely manner and to improve the service provided to patients.
Patients or their representatives who have a complaint or would like to express concerns about their care and safety or who have a compliment to share may contact Careline at (662) 377-2273 or e-mail
