More Than a Hospital

Our Calling

Every human life is a sacred gift from God. At St. Dominic's, our team of caregivers views each individual as special---to be treated with the utmost respect.  No matter the phase of life, our goal is to provide our patients with exceptional care for all aspects of the human existence---body, mind and spirit. We strive to not only provide care for the sick but also offer education and wellness services to our community in order to improve the health status of those around us and eliminate risk factors for more serious health problems.

God has called the Dominican Sisters to administer compassion and health care in His name to the people of Mississippi.  We fulfill this mission through advanced medical services in a state-of-the-art hospital and outpatient center, through caring for older adults in a continuing care retirement facility, through our primary and urgent care services, and into the community through a number of wellness and outreach programs.

Whether your healthcare needs are immediate or you are exploring our services and our purpose for when they are, we hope that you will choose St. Dominic's for you and your family.

Our Mission

St. Dominic's recognizes its basic participation in the mission of the Church which involves two main ministries:  Education and Health Care. Three activities--Communicating a Christian Message, Establishing Community, and Performing Service--express our mission of Christian Healing.

Our Reach

St. Dominic's mission calls us to establish community and perform service in the name of Jesus Christ.  To us, that means giving of our time, talents and resources to make our communities better places to live.  Our family of caregivers not only serves our patients, but also contributes to an atmosphere of care and compassion for those outside our hospital walls.
