The hospital will give the Marks and Quitman County area its first major medical service provider since 2016.

On Friday, Quitman Community Hospital plans to reopen.

The reopening of this hospital will give the Marks and Quitman County area its first major medical service provider since 2016, when the Quitman County Critical Access Rural Hospital closed.

The recently opened Quitman Community Hospital will be a fully functioning medical-surgical hospital with a 24-hour emergency medical ward.

“For the first time in five years, Quitman County residents will have access to intensive care with the reopening of this rural hospital. It is nothing short of a miracle to see all of this come to fruition, especially at a time when we are going through a pandemic and our current political climate. I can’t think of anyone opposing this particular project, “said District 11 Senator Robert L. Jackson, who represents the area.

Before Quitman Community Hospital reopened, members of the Marks community and the surrounding Quitman County area were forced to travel to Memphis for primary medical care. The new hospital will provide the community with access to a 24-hour emergency room.

Congressman Bennie Thompson, United States Senator Roger Wicker, CEO and Administrator Quentin Whitwell, Marks Mayor Joe Shegog, and others will be in attendance at the reopening and ribbon cutting Friday on Friday.
