Search Meridian Mississippi

Rush opened its doors to the Meridian community in 1915 when Dr. J.H. Rush founded the Rush Infirmary. Soon, the medical needs for area residents outgrew the existing bed capacity and in 1920, the hospital expanded its facility. Today, Rush is a comprehensive healthcare network providing quality care to people throughout East Central Mississippi and West Central Alabama.

Rush Health Systems serves residents in East Central Mississippi and West Central Alabama with a variety of inpatient, outpatient and community services. Their comprehensive system includes Rush Foundation Hospital, a 215-bed acute care facility; The Specialty Hospital of Meridian, a 49-bed long-term, acute care hospital which operates nine rural health clinics; Medical Foundation, Inc., a physician management company employing more than 40 providers; and Rush Home Care, a complete home health care.
