Beacham Memorial Hospital (BMH) is located in central Magnolia, Mississippi and operates under license from the Mississippi State Department of Health and is certified by the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

The hospital was founded by Dr. A.V. Beacham in 1938 with his brothers Hugh Thompson Beacham and W.D. Beacham, and stayed under his direction until 1964. It was then sold to Dr. Harry C. Frye and Dr. Warren A. Hiatt until they sold it to Pike County and the City of Magnolia in 1974. The hospital was constructed in three phases. The initial construction was done in 1939, the second stage was constructed in 1952, and the last phase was completed in 1976. The final phase resulted in an expansion of a patient area serving 37 beds, a kitchen area and a dining area. In 1977, the furnishings and equipment for the new facility were contributed by Mr. Joe Bancroft, Chairman of Croft Metals, Inc. In 2015, South Pike Hospital Association in partnership with Freedom Healthcare and their CEO, Jason Reed re-invented the facility into a 17 bed Acute Care Facility and a 14 bed geriatric behavioral health facility. This was vital to the survival of Beacham Memorial Hospital being an important economic institution in Pike County, increasing employment from 36 FT employees to over 73 total employees.

Beacham Memorial an acute care hospital and behavioral health unit that has expanded the area it serves from the residents of four (4) counties including Pike, Walthall, Amite and Lincoln Counties to now a seventeen (17) + county behavioral health referral/service base
