Kathe NewcombI'm glad to hear of positive experiences, as my three ER experiences were not, at all, positive. If I am conscious, I request MHG or Garden Park, even though they are much further, and time delays can have consequences.2 weeks ago

Heather Marvil RhodesI won't ever step foot into the ER at Hancock Medical ever again. There was one cordial competent personal--the night nurse. Everyone including the bald arrogant cocky ER dr needs an in service on interpersonal skills. This hospital isn't worth the slab it's sitting on. Do not get me started on HIPAA violations.4 weeks ago   ·  3

What patients say about Hancock Medical

  • Bay St. Louis Chiropractor Billy Powell and wife Trinity recommend the First Impressions Birthing Center at Hancock Medical Center to all their friends with growing families. “Trinity would like to have another child, and if we do, it will be at Hancock Medical with Dr. Noel,” said Billy. “All three of our children were born there, and each was a unique experience.” Dr. Noel Duplantier and Dr. Dimitri Yanez of the Hancock Women’s Center deliver on average over 200 babies each year at Hancock Medical. The Powell family makes their home in rural Kiln, Mississippi and are glad to have medical services within reach. “When your wife is expecting and it’s go time, it is nice to know the services you need are right here, close to home,” said Billy. “If we are blessed with another child, we will welcome the new addition with open arms at Hancock Medical.”

  • Late night rock n’ roll gigs can be tough on a person’s health. Rochelle Harper of Bay St. Louis knows firsthand and appreciates how easy it was for her and husband Gary Boswell to establish relationships with primary care providers at Hancock Medical Center. Hancock’s family medicine practice in Bay St. Louis has been a convenient option for their family. “We’ve planted roots in the Bay, and it has everything we need, including great healthcare,” said Harper. “I see primary care physician Dr. Becky Hollibaugh at Hancock Medical, and the hospital’s Physical Therapy Department has helped me with back issues.” Rochelle’s mother visits from Oregon often, so they have peace of mind that services are available in their community for the entire family. “Mammograms, x-rays and general health and wellness visits are convenient for us at Hancock Medical,” Rochelle said. “We are able to view records online and communicate with our doctor if we have a question that doesn’t require a visit.” For musicians on a busy performing schedule, healthcare with peace of mind at home in Hancock County hits all the right notes.

  • George Williams recently spent three days at Hancock Medical Center with a serious urinary infection and dehydration. He said the stay could not have gone better. “From the moment I was diagnosed, I had a seamless and excellent experience at Hancock Medical,” George said. George said that he was impressed with the quick and compassionate care he received upon admission to the hospital. “The excellent and convenient service continued for the entire time I was in Hancock Medical,” he said. “The nurses were very attentive to my needs – from the application of the medications to even the need for a fan to relieve discomfort from fever. The room was furnished so that my wife was able to stay overnight and closely monitor my recovery.” George said that he was even surprised at how delicious the food was, rounding out his overall experience. Married to Tish Williams, the Executive Director of the Hancock County Chamber of Commerce, George knows the importance of shopping local and the effect it can have on economic development. He said he sees the benefits his hometown hospital derives from its relationship with Ochsner Health System. “We receive excellent healthcare right here at home,” he said. “Thank you Hancock Medical Center and Ochsner Health System for the superb service provided to our residents.”

  • Lola Mulinix moved to the Mississippi Gulf Coast from Charleston, West Virginia 25 years ago, and she is a founding member of the Diamondhead Lion’s Club. Through her affiliation with Lions International, she lives the organization’s “We Serve” motto every day in her adopted Mississippi hometown. While staying active helping others, Lola depends on local healthcare at Hancock Medical Center. “I’ve never hesitated to use our local facilities. I find the personal touch that I receive at Hancock Medical to be an asset to our community.” The treatment she receives from doctors and staff, Lola said, is second to none. “Everyone is nice and helpful and very conscientious about the services they provide. Even the administrator taking time to visit with folks means a lot.” Lola says there’s a real personal touch that she feels whenever she needs services, and she says Hancock Medical has always been there for her. “I love my local care, and it is comforting to know there is a network of specialists at Ochsner if needed,” says Lola. “The personal touch I receive at Hancock Medical is why I come back whenever I need healthcare services.”

  • Roy Herron of Bay St. Louis is happy to wake up each morning to feed his chickens and pigs. He says he enjoys his chores and activities of daily living, even more so today after suffering a stroke in 2015. The former Avondale Shipyard employee and retired Hancock County Sheriff’s deputy woke up one summer day and felt a numbness in his arm. “I could barely hold my cup of coffee,” he said. “I knew right away that I needed to go to the hospital.” When a patient arrives at the emergency department at Hancock Medical with the symptoms of a stroke, an advanced computerized webcam is brought to the bedside, where the clinical team connects with a vascular neurologist on call at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans. The system was acquired through a partnership between Hancock Medical and Ochsner. On the day Herron came to the Hancock Medical Center Emergency Department, he was immediately examined, and stroke symptoms were prevalent. Through the telestroke system, the neurologist from Ochsner, Herron and the clinical team at Hancock Medical saw and spoke to each other throughout the consult. The neurologist was able to provide guidance on advanced treatment within minutes. Herron’s stroke symptoms were confirmed, and he was administered the medicine he needed. He said the technology saved his life. “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the efficiency of the Hancock Medical Emergency Department and their ability to coordinate everything back with Ochsner,” Herron said. “It gives you peace of mind to know that we have people here to handle emergencies like the one that happened to me.”

  • Throughout the surgery the nursing staff kept us updated whenever possible. The procedure took a couple of hours. Shortly thereafter Dr. Anthony addressed the family members present and was ready with answers to our primary questions. There is little doubt that the operation saved Mother’s life. For the wonderful service, professionalism and understanding by the HMC staff on that day and during the weeks of recovery, our family will be forever grateful.
