Hattiesburg Clinic first opened its doors on May 1, 1963, when an OB-GYN and general surgeon became partners. Together, these doctors began planning what is now the state’s largest multi-specialty clinic. Fifteen years later, Hattiesburg Clinic, then 10 doctors strong, was officially opened at its present site on South 28th Avenue, between I-59 at SR 49.
Fifty years after its beginning, Hattiesburg Clinic has grown to more than 300 physicians and 160 mid-level providers, caring for patients in more than 13 counties throughout southern Mississippi.
