Our Children’s Clinic near Jackson, MS
Dr. Vig started Sunshine Chidren's Clinic in Canton, MS, in March of 2000 after working in the area for 5 years and seeing the lack of Pediatric services in the community. She introduced and developed inpatient Pediatric MS Services at the Canton Hospital and outpatient services in her clinic. A number of patients were traveling up to 50 miles to get essential health care, so the Sunshine Clinic was started in Carthage in July of 2002 and in Yazoo City in June 2010. Providing quality compassionate care at your doorstep has always been our aim at our children’s clinic near Jackson, MS.
