These are photos from today's Habitat for Humanity/ Metro Jackson press day with the four CEOs from the area hospitals and Board members from Habitat with the future homeowner.


For the first time in the metro Jackson area, health care institutions have collaborated to build a Habitat for Humanity/Metro Jackson home. The partnering institutions are Baptist Health Systems, St. Dominic Health Services, Inc., the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) and Health Management Associates (River Oaks Hospital, Madison River Oaks, Crossgates River Oaks,  CMMC and Woman’s Hospital).

The four chief executives of these institutions – wearing hardhats and Healthcare Build 2013 tee-shirts in their institution’s colors gathered with Habitat for Humanity/Metro Jackson officials for a Healthcare Build 2013 at the home construction site - 233 Englewood Street.  Employees from the four health care institutions plus students from UMMC will be working together that day and throughout the eight-day building process during March and April. The health care institutions will provide an equal number of workers for each work shift, creating unprecedented collaboration. 
The Jackson area health care leaders said the project represents cooperation for a common community purpose that can help build cooperation among the institutions in other areas.
