Ceremony formally christens UMMC Grenada
During a noontime ceremony on Feb. 7, leaders from the City of Grenada, community, county, state and national levels joined UMMC representatives in welcoming Grenada's premier health-care facility into the University of Mississippi Medical Center family.
Inside the hospital lobby, community and Medical Center representatives pulled off a decorative cover to reveal a wall-mounted, backlit U logo that will greet patients, visitors and families as they come into the facility through glass double doors.
The event formally christened the former Grenada Lake Medical Center as the University of Mississippi Medical Center Grenada. A luncheon attended by hospital staff, guests and community members followed the ceremony.
