The specialty hospital at Rush Health System in Meridian is celebrating 25 years of care.
The hospital opened back in 1994 and has since had a mission of providing 24-hour physician and nursing care for patients in East Mississippi and West Alabama that have complex medical issues that require extended care.
Patients have been helped in intensive respiratory care wound care and much more.
“I have been here for nearly 20 of the 25 years. To know personally what specialty hospital was and what it has evolved to especially in the mist of very troubling health care climate with a lot of regulatory concerns, it is a great honor to be still standing after 25 years,” said Kawanda Johnson Exec vice president.”
