Methodist Senior Services

Methodist Senior Services (MSS) is proud to announce that all of its 12 state-wide campuses are Tobacco-Free. The transition began November 21, 2013, and became fully effective November 20, 2014, both dates coinciding with the Great American Smokeout coordinated by the American Cancer Society.

As part of the MSS ministry to provide life-enriching services, Methodist Senior Services is dedicated to enhancing the health and well-being of its residents, employees, and visitors. MSS is committed to improving the health of the workplace and those MSS serves each day. By making these campuses tobacco-free, MSS is addressing one of the top health risks facing Americans today. "A tobacco-free environment is a healthier environment," said Steve McAlilly, President/CEO of Methodist Senior Services. "We value our communities," added Stan Maynard, Executive Director of Trinity Place Community in Columbus, Mississippi, one of MSS' twelve retirement communities. "The implementation of this policy allows us to enhance the health and well-being of our residents and staff." 

MSS' transition to a tobacco-free environment began November 21, 2013 on the Great American Smokeout Day. MSS is proud to join with other health and residential care providers throughout the nation who have created a tobacco-free environment for the benefit of those who live at, work at, and visit our campuses. MSS has helped identify educational resources for tobacco management and cessation for both residents and employees.

Local Information

Hattiesburg is a friendly, affordable place to live.  It’s famous hallmark is the hospitality of her people.

Hattiesburg is home to the University of Southern Mississippi and abounds in cultural opportunities and special events. The artistic and cultural flair of Hattiesburg is most notable in the Historic Downtown District, which features many architectural gems, such as the historic Saenger Theater and the Hattiesburg Historic Train Depot. Unique shops, galleries and tasty local dining round out this vibrant community.

Unique to Hattiesburg, the Longleaf Trace, Mississippi's only certified Rails to Trails Conservancy project, is a multi-use recreational trail spanning 42 miles from Hattiesburg to Prentiss, MS. The Longleaf Trace Gateway, where information and bike rentals are available, can be found on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi.

Finally, a truly patriotic experience awaits at our two military museums. The Mississippi Armed Forces Museum, located on the base of Camp Shelby just south of Hattiesburg, features more than 6,000 artifacts spanning America's military history. The museum displays interactive and life-sized dioramas such as the "live" WWI battle trench and a full-scale Vietnam medical mission. The African American Military History Museum is housed in one of the last remaining USO buildings created specifically for the African American military population. A walk through this relic immerses visitors in a hands-on experience of valor and bravery exhibited by this pioneering group of soldiers.
