Memory Care

The Terry Center for Memory Care

The Terry Center is named in memory of Dr. W.S. Terry, a native Jeffersonian who returned to his hometown after medical school. The staff of Magnolia Place feels privileged to name The Terry Center in honor of an outstanding physician who dedicated many years of service to Marion County.
