NMMC-West Point Welcomes Dr. Mouton as Hospitalist
WEST POINT, Miss.— Cynthia Mouton, M.D., recently joined North Mississippi Medical Center-West Point as a full-time hospitalist.
Hospitalists are physicians who limit their practice to the hospital and are experienced and skilled in managing the unique medical needs of hospitalized patients. Hospitalists work closely with the patient’s primary care physicians to keep them up to date on the patient’s condition and treatment. When patients are ready to leave the hospital, hospitalists inform their primary physicians about any changes in medication, follow-up care and other needs.
Dr. Mouton graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in biology from Loyola University in New Orleans in 2002. She earned her medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans in 2011. She completed a family medicine residency at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 2014. Since then, she has worked with hospitals in Mississippi and Alabama.
