Panola Med's 57-bed acute care psychiatric hospital officially renamed Crossroads.

On March 7, 2019, Vizion Health’s CEO, Mark Schneider announced that Progressive Medical Management acquired Panola Medical Center in Batesville, MS. Panola is a 112-bed acute care facility with two campuses; one campus a 55-bed medical hospital and the second campus a 57-bed acute care psychiatric hospital. Vizion Health announced today that it has officially renamed the psychiatric hospital Crossroads.

Crossroads’ Executive Director Renee Cole reported, “The main hospital has had many names over the years from Tri Lakes, Community Health Systems, Merritt and most recently Panola Medical Center.” Ms. Cole added that, “The psychiatric hospital has always been referred to as the “west campus."
