Baptist Leake offers acute care and swing bed services, as well as an intensive outpatient program (IOP), MRI, vascular ultrasound, echocardiography, wound care and podiatry services. Our Level IV emergency room is staffed by qualified physicians and ancillary staff. We offer primary care services from two clinics located in Walnut Grove and Carthage for all your family’s health care needs. The Birthplace from Baptist Medical Center in Jackson offers satellite services in Carthage. A board certified OB/GYN physician and nurse practitioner are on-site weekly supporting your prenatal care.
Swing Bed (or Skilled Nursing Care) is a Medicare program designed to provide additional inpatient care to those needing extra time to heal or strengthen. Our Swing Bed program offers a much needed service for patients who no longer need acute hospital care, but do need skilled nursing or therapy care to complete their recovery. Our program offers patients a seamless transition from acute to follow up care, 24 hour skilled nursing care, comfort and familiarity of a local hospital and near to loved ones and friends.

Baptist Leake's Senior Life Solutions Intensive Outpatient Program is a short-term, day program that provides support and treatment for adults age 55 and older who are facing emotional or mental difficulties.

For others, this type of program provides support while they work through family and/or emotional issues. Participants attend therapy groups during the day and return to their own residence each afternoon.
This program is designed for the older adult who requires more than regular outpatient counseling, but does not require inpatient treatment. Your loved one may benefit from the Senior Life Solutions program if he or she is experiencing any of the following:
