2018 MHA Outstanding Small Rural Hospital from Mississippi Hospital Assoc on Vimeo.
The Mississippi Hospital Association (MHA) is proud to announce its 2018 Outstanding Mississippi Small Rural Hospital Award recipient, Laird Hospital in Union.
Laird Hospital is a 25-bed acute-care hospital that provides a wide range of inpatient, outpatient and emergency services. Laird Hospital has a rich heritage as a hospital built by the community. Founded on the vision of Dr. Earl Laird, Sr., the hospital believes in providing compassionate health care services that reach out to those living in Union and the surrounding area.
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.
