Every person deserves to live and work in an environment where they can thrive and become their best self. Whatever that looks like for your life, it can be found here. Thriving means more than collecting a pay check, and we want more than that for our nurses.

 

 

"Living and working in Hattiesburg has given me every opportunity to thrive within the community. Whether my wife or I are cheering on the Golden Eagles or getting involved with our local church, we both enjoy the feeling of a small town with the amenities that only come with living in a much larger city. The Hattiesburg area offers us everything we need and want, including great local shops and restaurants, entertainment, and a central home between all our friends and family." - Kevin Gregory, NICU
