EUPORA, Miss. (WCBI) – North Mississippi Medical Center in Eupora celebrated a big win and its position in the community on Thursday.
NMMC Eupora won the 2019 Outstanding Mississippi Small Rural Hospital Award.
The hospital’s focus for the award was telehealth, which is a new technology that allows medical workers to provide face-to-face care for patients through video screenings.
“We selected our telehealth program because it’s relatively new and it’s been such a resource for our patients,” said Robin Mixon, Hospital Administrator at NMMC Eupora. “It allows people in our local community to have access to specialty care without even leaving the local market.”
Hospital workers said services like telehealth highlight just one of the many reasons rural hospitals, like the one in Eupora, are so vital to the community.
