Sharing Our Story - 72 Years of Service

This day is an important day in our organization’s history. On this date 72 years ago, August 11, 1950, Jackson-Madison County General Hospital opened its doors to serve our first patient. The organization was born when the need for a new, modern hospital in Jackson, TN became critical during World War II, as the population in the area grew.
