KOSCIUSKO, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi Baptist Health Systems has officially taken over operations of Montfort Jones Memorial Hospital.

WLIN-FM in Kosciusko reports (https://bit.ly/1d9RBVl ) the changeover came Monday after several months of negotiations between the Attala County Board of Supervisors and Baptist Health Systems. The two sides came to an agreement on April 9, 2015.

All current hospital staff members will keep their jobs at the hospital, which will now be called Baptist Medical Center-Attala.

Baptist will operate the Montfort Jones facility as a critical access hospital and will continue to provide the core services currently offered in the facility. Baptist Medical Center in Jackson will serve as a referral hospital for specialties not offered in a critical access hospital setting.
