GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The Driftwood Nursing Center will officially become part of Memorial Hospital on July 1, 2019. The center will operates as Memorial Driftwood Nursing Center.

“We’re pleased to welcome Driftwood Nursing Center and their staff to our healthcare team as we continue to offer comprehensive medical services in South Mississippi. Driftwood will enhance the continuum of care needed for our patients and their families,” said Kent Nicaud, President/CEO of Memorial Hospital at Gulfport.
