The county hospital will end its nearly five-year affiliation with Anderson in Meridian in what Neshoba General’s administrator characterized as a good move at this time due to their growth.

The Board of Trustees of Neshoba County General Hospital and Nursing on Tuesday officially announced ending the affiliation with  Anderson Regional Medical Center and Anderson Regional Medical Center – South of Meridian.  

The effective date of the termination will be March 28, 2017, due to a required 120-day notice.  

The decision was made by the NCGH Board of Trustees at its November board meeting.  The affiliation was originally announced and effective on July 18, 2011.  

The trustees and administration “would like to thank the entire team at ARMC for their professionalism and support shown during the entirety of the affiliation,” a release said.

 The Board of Trustees assured all of its providers, support staff, patients and community stakeholders that NCGH will continue fulfilling its mission, which is to provide our region with a community focused healthcare system based on cost effective, quality care.  

“We are excited about our recent growth and will continue expanding the framework of comprehensive and compassionate healthcare services”, said Lee McCall, Chief Executive Officer of Neshoba County General Hospital.

The affiliation gave Neshoba  General access to Anderson's specialty services and business expertise while maintaining its independence and local governance.
