TUPELO – North Mississippi Health Services can add another star to its record.
The Tupelo-based hospital system has been named to a list of the nation’s top health systems by Modern Healthcare magazine.
The annual rankings, compiled by Thomson Reuters, are based on patient satisfaction and clinical quality outcomes of 321 health systems and represent the top 20 percent among them.
No other Mississippi hospitals were on the list.
“This honor validates that our organization is focused on the right things: our patients and the quality of care and service provided to them,”said John Heer, chief executive for North Mississippi Health Services.
