Beginning in 1952 as a 90-bed facility, Forrest General Hospital has grown into a 512-bed, Level II Regional Trauma Center and hospital system, Forrest Health, that supports outlying hospitals in caring for their communities. Forrest General Hospital is the flagship hospital of Forrest Health, a network of hospitals and clinics across 19 counties in South Mississippi. Our Vision, to define the healthcare experience by providing world class care, along with our "We C.A.R.E." mission and philosophy, extends into the communities we serve. This means local community hospitals are strengthened with the support of Forrest Health, while you can count on receiving increased access to high quality healthcare services.
Forrest Health hospitals include: Forrest General Hospital, Highland Community Hospital, Jefferson Davis Community Hospital, Marion General Hospital, Walthall General Hospital.
