About Rush

Message from the CEO

On behalf of Rush Foundation Hospital, welcome to our web site. At Rush, we are dedicated to providing the residents of East Central Mississippi and West Central Alabama new and updated facilities, a strong commitment to community, and quality treatment, and healthcare. I invite you to explore this site and learn more about our extensive network of healthcare clinics, experienced physicians, specialized services, educational programs, and the many career opportunities available at Rush.

In 1947, our founder, Dr. J. H. "Hack" Rush's sons, Lowry and Leslie, physicians themselves, established a "Builder's Creed" based on the trait of human-kind which makes each man his brother's keeper. Their pioneering spirit lives today and is evident through a dedicated team of individuals who make it their responsibility to care for their fellow man.

We hope this web site meets your health information needs. Our goal is to continually make improvements based on your input. Your comments, questions, and suggestions are important to us, and I encourage you to Contact Us.

Everyone at Rush Foundation Hospital—staff members, volunteers and employees—believes in providing you and your family the best choice when it comes to quality healthcare. Thanks for visiting us online.
