Formerly King’s Daughters Hospital (KDH), Baptist Medical Center Yazoo owes its existence to an organization of women called the Mary Brickell Circle of King’s Daughters. This group, an order of women whose purpose is the desire of doing greater service for humanity in the name of Christ the KING, was established in Yazoo City in 1887. The Mary Brickell Circle is one of 3,000 that exist in the United States, Canada, and several other foreign countries.
The original hospital was built in 1922 on Fifth Street, and was operated by the doctors and local citizens. The hospital was offered to the Mary Brickell Circle of King’s Daughters and took over the operation of the hospital on January 2, 1930.
The current hospital was built in 1955 and the first patient was admitted on November 1, 1955. The hospital was licensed for 88 beds, provided general medicine and surgical care and was staffed by approximately 180 employees.
In 2006 KDH initiated a Hospitalists program giving local physicians the opportunity to admit their patients through the program or admit them directly themselves. This program also offers the ability to admit emergency room patients to the hospital when necessary.
In 2009 KDH became affiliated with Mississippi Baptist Health Systems. And in 2011 KDH opened a Primary Care Clinic inside the hospital.
In February 2015 Baptist Health Systems entered an agreement to purchase the operations of King’s Daughters Hospital and its Primary Baptist Care Clinic(s) in Yazoo City. Today, the facility operates under the name of Baptist Medical Center Yazoo.
