Pediatric services at MBMC

When it comes to your child, you can trust in our care

Children are naturally susceptible to sickness, injuries and accidents. Their immune systems are still getting stronger, giving them a higher risk of catching contagious illnesses. And they’re inherently curious and likely to get into more situations that lead to injury. 

Mississippi Baptist Medical Center provides comprehensive, nurturing pediatric care for your child in a safe, comfortable environment. From our technologically advanced NICU unit to outpatient surgery and specialists dedicated to treating all kinds of childhood diseases and conditions, we provide around-the-clock emergency services and specialized, innovative care for young children throughout Jackson, MS, and Central Mississippi to help you keep them healthy, and in one piece.

Having children brings joy and excitement. But, when they’re not feeling well or something totally unexpected happens, knowing how to care for them and what to do can be overwhelming. Listen as the Ferguson and Hasley families share their experiences at Baptist.

Video Access Lets Parents Be Part of Their Baby’s Care

Giving birth to a child prematurely can be very stressful. We can help reduce the stress for parents of newborns in our newborn intensive care unit (NICU) by offering  a round-the-clock video stream of their baby while they’re staying in our NICU.

Our NICU camera system extends care by giving parents and family members real-time visual access to their newborn(s). Family members can connect to the password-protected live stream 24/7, to see their baby’s bed.

LaToya and Shamarrick Butler know how much this service means to new parents. Watch and listen as they share their experience.
