TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo will move its pediatrics unit from the NMMC Women's Hospital to the main hospital on Saturday.

Hospital officials say the unit was moved out of the main hospital in September 2014 to have all pediatric services under one roof but NMMC is now treating more children needing critical care.

Administrators say the move will lead to the creation of an intensive care unit for children.

They add moving the pediatrics unit back to the main hospital will improve access to pharmacy services.
