Women and Children's Services
Since 1952, Forrest Health's Women and Children's Services has been delivering superior care in an extensive range of services with personal attention and highly-skilled physicians and nurses.
In fact, the first Forrest Health patient was an expectant mother whose baby was delivered minutes before the hospital's official opening. Since our beginning, we've been committed to the care of our mothers and babies whenever they need us the most.
In 2016, Forrest General became the first and only hospital in Mississippi to achieve Baby-Friendly designation, which recognizes hospitals that offer the highest level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding.
This is why families have trusted their health and future to Forrest Health for more than half a century. No matter what your age, no matter what your needs, we offer services designed especially for you.
