Children's of Mississippi is planning a "transformational" expansion project that includes renovations to Batson Children's Hospital and a new building next door. The project addresses pediatrics' growing need for space and will be a major step toward meeting the statewide health-care needs of Mississippi's kids.

Mississippi-based artist Wyatt Waters is braving the afternoon weather to do a piece featuring the mass of umbrellas leaving the Medical Center. We can't wait to see the final product.

Gov. Phil Bryant leads a group that includes Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber and Scott Thompson, CEO of #Venyu, to officially break ground on the planned Venyu Technology Center located on the area that includes the former McRae's on Meadowbrook Rd. On the site also will be a newly constructed building to serve as the new home for the UMMC Center for Telehealth.
