History – Alliance Health Center

Sisters of St. Joseph Hospital. In 1964, the sisters moved the
hospital from downtown Meridian to the present location at 5000
Highway 39 North, Meridian, Mississippi. In 1977, the hospital was
purchased by Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). The name was
changed to Meridian Regional Hospital. In 1983, the hospital was
sold to Republic Health who initiated the Adolescent
Psychiatric/Behavioral Health Clinic and Chemical Dependency. In
1989, the hospital was purchased by local investors and the name
was changed to Laurelwood Center. Acute medical/surgical services
were discontinued and the focus was exclusively to provide
psychiatric services. In 2003, the hospital was acquired by
Psychiatric Solutions, Inc. Psychiatric Solutions, Inc. was the
largest inpatient provider for Psychiatric/Behavioral Health
Services at that time.
