South Mississippi State Hospital Catchment Area
SMSH primarily admits from the following regions:
Jefferson Davis, Covington, Jones, Wayne, Marion, Lamar, Forrest, Perry, Greene and Pearl River counties
Stone, Hancock and Harrison counties
George and Jackson counties
Although these are the areas designated as the SMSH catchment area, the hospital occasionally takes admissions from other counties if there is no one on the SMSH waiting list.
