Founded in 1996 by Dr. Aaron Shirley, the Jackson Medical Mall was transformed from an abandoned shopping mall to a modern medical and retail facility. The mission, to provide healthcare for the underserved and to promote economic and community development, was made possible through strategic partnerships with UMMC, Jackson State University and Tougaloo College. 20 years later, the Jackson Medical Mall sits proudly in the center of the state’s capital city, providing high quality health and community services to the public.
The Medical Mall has done a great job of increasing traffic in this area, which has, increased economics in this area. I love that they are also focused on community development, especially with the development of East Village Estates.
My fondest memory here has been meeting people from different counties. I have been here for nine years and I enjoy how nice the people are here.
