Merit Health Madison recently cut the ribbon on its new medical office building in Canton, Miss. The 35,000-square-foot healthcare facility includes primary care, obstetrics/gynecology and orthopedics, among other medical specialties. Located next to Merit Health’s existing 67-bed hospital, the building features an outpatient physical rehabilitation clinic to provide patients occupational health and speech pathology therapy services.

The new medical facility joins Merit Health's network of 12 in-state hospitals and will allow patients in north Madison County to visit their physician in Canton, rather than traveling to Jackson.

Capital Growth Medvest is the developer for the project, Brasfield & Gorrie served as the general contractor, and the facility was designed by Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood (GMC).
