Welcome to Scott Regional Hospital
“Healthcaring for You”
Scott Regional Hospital opened in June 1993, proving quality health care to the people of Morton, Mississippi and the surrounding area. On September 1, 2007, Scott Regional Hospital became a division of Rush Health Systems in Meridian, Mississippi, bringing medical expertise and the opportunity for growth and development to the hospital.
A 25-bed acute-care hospital, Scott Regional Hospital provides a wide range of inpatient, outpatient and emergency services.Patients can be admitted to the hospital if their medical needs make that the best option. A variety of other services are available on an inpatient and outpatient basis through the hospital’s imaging, laboratory and rehabilitative services, including physical, occupational and speech therapy.
Patients are cared for under the direction of their physician by a licensed health care team including registered nurses, physical therapists, social workers, dietitians, pharmacists and other ancillary staff, depending on the patient’s medical needs.
A 24-hour emergency department is staffed with qualified emergency room hospitalists and family nurse practitioners and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The hospitalists also act as hospital physicians, which means they can admit and care for patients who do not have a physician who regularly admits patients at the hospital.
Skilled nursing and rehabilitative care are available at Scott Regional Hospital through the Swing Bed Program. Those recovering from surgery, a stroke, a fracture or an extended medical illness and hospitalization can choose to rehabilitate at Scott Regional Hospital, whether or not they were hospitalized in another location.
