MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A new state of the art hospital opened in Madison County.  Madison River Oaks Medical Center began patient care Sunday.  The 113,000 square foot hospital is located just off Interstate 55 at Nissan Parkway.  The $42 million facility offers 24 hour emergency care, women's services, orthopedics, general surgery, pediatrics and more using the latest medical technology.

 "We've got great robotics now.  We've got the DaVinci robot. All these things help patients recover more timely and hopefully they can get back to what they enjoy doing a lot more quickly than with the old ways we used to do things," said Glen Silverman, Chief Executive Officer at Madison River Oaks Medical Center.

The hospital replaces the Old River Oaks Medical Center on East Peace Street in Canton. River Oaks Healthcare System operates five hospitals in the Jackson metro area.
