Five Horizons- Starkville: Message from the Executive Director
I want to welcome you to Five Horizons Health Services – Starkville, where our passion for providing exceptional healthcare and promoting prevention is guided by our patient-centered approach. We are extremely excited about joining the Starkville community and providing services to the people of Oktibbeha and surrounding counties.
Our core beliefs are simple. All people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. All people are more than their medical diagnoses or socioeconomic status. All people have a right to accessible and high-quality healthcare. These fundamental principles serve as the foundation for who we are and what we do. We are unwavering in our dedication to provide a safe environment that recognizes each person’s individualism regardless of race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or age.
Our culture is made actionable in five core aspects: medical care, prevention / testing, supportive services, research, and advocacy. Testing and treating STIs and HIV. Providing prescriptions for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Addressing food insecurity and medical transportation barriers. Collaborating with universities, community organizations, and medical providers / facilities on critical research projects. Advocating on national, state, and local levels for policies that are beneficial for populations in need. This is Five Horizons.
We are proud to be members of this community and look forward to helping improve the lives of those we serve for many years to come.
