A Letter from the CEO
Welcome to Southeast Mississippi Rural Health Initiative, Inc. (SeMRHI)

On behalf of myself, our Board of Directors, and staff, we thank you for choosing SeMRHI as your medical home.

The health of our communities as a whole depends on having a place to go for primary care. Primary care is critical for identifying and treating health problems so that people can avoid serious and preventable illnesses. Yet, today many families face barriers to healthcare including accessibility and affordability.

The patients we serve face countless barriers to accessing consistent healthcare. Factors such as lack of insurance, limited income, and little or no transportation options leave many working families and entire communities with few options for care.

As a network of community health centers, Southeast Mississippi Rural Health Initiative, Inc., is the solution. We have been providing affordable quality primary and preventive healthcare in a patient centered, safe, compassionate environment for more than 30 years.

The success of SeMRHI is largely attributed to its dedication to the community and meeting the needs of the community and meeting the needs of its patients.
