CMMC is the first hospital in Jackson to offer safer radiation treatments, including the state’s only gamma knife; one of the first hospitals in the nation to add a PET/CT scanner to its nuclear medicine department; the first hospital in Mississippi to offer several comprehensive programs including weight management, balance and hearing and wound management; the first hospital to introduce a pediatric hospitalist program; and, to offer digital mammography combined with a special computer-aided detection system.  In 1987, CMMC began providing radiation oncology and diagnostic services through its Cancer Care Center. Fourteen years later, the hospital opened the Robert R. Smith, M.D., Gamma Knife Center, which houses the state’s only gamma knife for patients with inoperable brain tumors.
