Nursing Department

The nursing staff at Jackson General Hospital always strives to provide safe, effective, and high-quality care. Nursing personnel help to develop the patient’s plan of care through teamwork with the patient, the physician, and other healthcare professionals. Some of these healthcare professionals include pharmacists, licensed physical therapists, case managers, imaging services personnel, nutrition specialists, laboratory personnel, and respiratory therapists.

There are three divisions of nursing at Jackson General Hospital: the Emergency Department, Surgical Services Department, and the Medical-Surgical Unit. Each area works together to provide the patient with the best experience possible. These dedicated teams of Registered Nurses, Licensed Professional Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants, Surgical Technicians, and Unit Secretaries always want to provide the best care possible to every patient every time.
