Overview

campus

Jackson-Madison County General Hospital is a 635-bed tertiary care center located in Jackson, Tennessee for more than 60 years. Because of the hospital's geographic proximity to a population of more than 550,000, Jackson General has evolved from a community based facility in 1950 to one of the nation's 10 largest not for profit health care systems in the country. The current facility rivals any tertiary care center normally found in larger, urban academic centers. The technology and physical plant available to patients and physicians alike include a new nine-story bed tower, complete digital radiology, a new comprehensive electronic medical record, three da Vinci robots, minimally invasive cardiothoracic surgery, and the list goes on.

Jackson General is one of the nation's few large city-county owned hospital systems that does not receive tax support from the local government. Because of its success over the years, the system has been able to invest heavily in technology and capital needs. As the only tertiary care center between Memphis and Nashville, the physicians at Jackson General are able to develop busy practices in a very short amount of time compared to larger cities with more physicians competing for patients.

Jackson General is proud to be a teaching hospital for the University of Tennessee. The University of Tennessee trains 24 family medicine residents locally and provides a two year Emergency Medicine fellowship housed in Jackson General's emergency department.
