40 Union Church Road
Meadville, MS 39653


About Us:

Franklin County Memorial Hospital, established in 1951, was originally financed through a local bond issue and the Hospital Survey and construction Act, also known as the Hill-Burton Act of 1946. The hospital is governed by the FCMH Board of Trustees. The seven (7) member board includes one (1) member from each of the five (5) Franklin County supervisor districts, one (1) member at large and the current Chief of Staff. The board members duties are to establish administrative policy for the hospital, review hospital finances, approve patient charges and employees' salaries. 

In May, 2009 FCMH received the designation as a Critical Access Hospital in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. This designation results in a strengthening of rural health care. The hospital is also a not-for-profit institution approved by the State of Mississippi for participation in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and is licensed by the Mississippi State Department of Health. The Mississippi State Department of Health conducts an extensive periodic survey to maintain the license of FCMH. The hospital is also a member of the Mississippi Hospital Association. 

Since opening, FCMH has grown to employ over 230 full-time and part-time employees. The hospital serves not only Franklin County, but the eight surrounding counties as well.
