Started in 1984 in an old lumberyard building in Ashland, MS, Benton Medical Center has been serving the people as Benton County and its surrounding areas ever since. Home to the corporate headquarters of NMPHC, this site was the start of it all. We continue to provide high quality affordable healthcare to the North Mississippi area as well as some parts of Tennessee and Alabama. Stop by to see our highly qualified and caring staff for all your medical needs today!
Starting in 1993, through a federal grant opportunity, NMPHC expanded its offerings to the residents of Walnut in Tippah County. Our clinic here has grown and become a bedrock of quality healthcare in Walnut and its surrounding areas.
In 1995 NMPHC and a local family doctor, Dr. Dwalia South, struck an agreement to begin offering all services at a site in Ripley. After 2 successful years of managing this facility an agreement was made in 1997 to purchase the clinic site and fully incorporate it into the NMPHC umbrella. Dr. South remains with the organization and, along with family nurse practitioner Lashundra Hall, continues to deliver the highest level of care for patients in the Ripley and surrounding areas.
Valentine's Day, 2000 saw the opening and further expansion of NMPHC and its services into the Booneville area. With an outstanding community college in town, NMPHC feels proud and honored to serve all the medical and mental health needs of the Booneville area.
