Tutwiler Clinic Joins Tallahatchie General Hospital
The Tutwiler Clinic has officially become a clinic of Tallahatchie General Hospital, a non-profit, critical access hospital located in Charleston, MS. After careful planning and preparation, the Tutwiler Clinic property was acquired by Tallahatchie General Hospital and all of the Clinic's medical providers and staff became employees of the TGH Corporation.
Sisters Maureen Delaney, Kathleen Hilton and Mary Ellen Holohan, who are SNJM corporate members of Tutwiler Clinic, are grateful for this outcome and sincerely appreciate Dr. Anne Brooks, SNJM, Cora Lee Middleton, SSND, Joann Blomme, OP and Tutwiler Clinic staff and board members, who have worked diligently on all of the required details. Everything is in place for a smooth transition, which ensures uninterrupted health care for residents of the Tutwiler area.
The Tutwiler Clinic has been an SNJM incorporated ministry since 1984, sponsored first by the New York Province and since 2006 by the U.S.-Ontario Province. Under the capable leadership of Dr. Brooks and staffed by others from the SNJM and multiple other religious communities who have chosen to minister in the Mississippi Delta, this has been a vibrant element of our collective outreach to an under-served rural population with few economic resources.
