Healthcare is one of the main pillars on which Flowood’s prosperity has been built. With its business-friendly government and proximity to the Jackson-Evers International Airport, Flowood is an ideal location for both major hospitals and specialty clinics that attract patients from all over the state and South.
Merit Health River Oaks and Merit Health Woman’s Hospital, both part of the Merit Health network, have been integral parts of Flowood’s growth since 1981 and 1975, respectively. Along with the two hospitals, there are dozens of private practices within Flowood — ranging from specialists in neurosurgery, skincare, gastroenterology, ear, nose and throat, plastic surgery, and countless other schools of medicine, as well as general practices.
We’re also proud to be home to the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency, who chose to build their headquarters in Flowood thanks to its proximity to the airport and so many local hospitals, as well as Mississippi Blood Services, the only FDA licensed blood center headquartered in Mississippi.
