Jackson Parish Hospital has great services and medical staff. It is the Administration that is worthless at this place. The medical staff is wonderful, caring, and they do all that they can or are allowed to do. If the could/would get some new administration in that place and not someone that is trying to make it Green Clinic it would be much better!! But it is a small town and all about the politics, the only other issues my family and i have had is the billing department. They do not send out bills and just turn you in to collections without even trying to contact you in anyway.
