    It’s really exciting to see what the Pascagoula Redevelopment Authority has planned for the Riverfront Development Site. The results of this project will bring an even better quality of life for our community, which means a lot to us at Singing River Health System. We provide over 2,300 high quality jobs to the area, plus we have a Medical Staff of some 300 physicians. As the Riverfront develops, the positive additions it will bring in retail, entertainment, and housing will be a big plus for the Health System, as we continue to recruit the excellent employees and doctors that we bring to live and work in Pascagoula. Also, as a native Pascagoulan, the possibilities of the Riverfront are wonderful to envision. -Craig Summerlin, Chief Human Resources Officer, Singing River Health System
