Building a reputation, serving the community

2008 will be an exciting year for Jackson Hospital.

We at Jackson Hospital are formulating our plans for the new year with you, the customer, in mind. Our future is very bright as we launch various major projects to include:

The Jackson Surgery Center. We have broken ground on a new outpatient surgery center located on our main campus. When this center is finished this fall, it is projected that more surgeries will be done on our campus than at any other single location in the River Region.

We are all familiar with high-definition television sets, but now HD is coming to surgery. Each of the new operating suites has its own hardwired HD operating scope system.

The Jackson Imaging Center. We have also broken ground on a new imaging center at our main campus. This center will have the latest diagnostic imaging equipment. Test results from this facility, along with digital images from the studies, will be instantly available to the physician of your choice through a secure web link.

The Mom & Baby Center. We continue to focus on the smallest in our family—the new babies that we have the joy of bringing into this world. Thanks to generous donations from our community, we have been able to expand our nursery to care for more of our newcomers. The care and attention we give our children at a very young age has a tremendous effect on their lives as adults. We are honored to be a part of this first phase of their lives.

Electronic medical records. Jackson Hospital will move toward our goal of going totally paperless by the end of this year. Through a password-secured link, your hospital and diagnostic records will be instantly available to your local physician and to other specialty physicians you may choose, even if they are at remote locations.

So, as you can see, 2008 will be an exciting year in the growth and development of Jackson Hospital. Please do not hesitate to call on us for your healthcare needs.

Best regards,

Don Henderson
President and CEO
