Children's Referring Physicians

Children’s of Mississippi welcomes physician referrals and offers several easy ways to make a referral and transfer or admit a patient to Batson Children’s Hospital.

We have experienced specialists and subspecialists covering a broad scope of pediatric care. It is our policy to keep referring physicians fully up to date on their patients’ progress, and discharge patients back to their providers with complete information for effective continuity of care.
