The Medical Clinic began in 1949 when Dr. E.L. Posey returned to Jackson from the Mayo Clinic and opened an office to practice internal medicine on the corner of Manship and North Street. Dr. Samuel L. Stephenson joined Dr. Posey in 1952. Dr. F. Earl Fyke, Jr. joined the practice in 1957 after returning from military service and specialty training at the Mayo Clinic. Jackson Medical Associates also had its beginning in 1945 when Dr. David Jennings Vanlandingham established an internal medicine practice in Jackson. Dr. J. Manning Hudson merged his practice with Dr. Vanlandingham in the mid 1950's. Dr. Robert E. Tyson, who had practiced in Holly Springs, joined the team in 1965. In 1971, Jackson Medical Associates was established as a professional association when Dr. Dale Read, an endocrinologist joined the group. On January 2, 1996, two of the premier internal medicine clinics in central Mississippi joined forces. Jackson Medical Clinic was formed by the merger of Jackson Medical Associates, P.A. and The Medical Clinic, P.A., and the group joined together at The Colonnades medical office building in 1998. In 2008, the physicians of Central Medical Clinic partnered with the Jackson Medical Clinic physicians and relocated to the offices in The Colonnades medical office building, unifying the group with the name Premier Medical Group of Mississippi. In 2015, the group founded more than 50 years ago joined the Baptist Health Systems network, with the continuing commitment of providing quality care for their patients and referring doctors, serving both the Jackson and regional areas.
