STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - OCH Regional Medical Center will be affiliating with the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

Tuesday's announcement comes one day after the hospital in Starkville announced a new chief executive officer, Jim Jackson. 

It also comes after weeks of discussions with UMMC and two other hospital systems -- North Mississippi Health Services and Baptist -- about possible affiliation.

Interestingly, North Mississippi Medical Center, the flagship hospital of North Mississippi Health Services, has an affiliation agreement with UMMC.
