Morgan Health Center will be breaking ground on its new building Saturday at 1 p.m. at 166 N. State Street. The public is encouraged to attend a short groundbreaking program followed by light refreshments.
The Morgan Health Center and its dedicated staff of physicians, nurses, medical assistants, and administrative staff have been serving the community for more than 20 years. Carol Durrant and Myra Turner remain as the original staff when the clinic first opened. MountainStar and HCA Physician Services are dedicated to providing the best possible care to the residents of Morgan and the surrounding communities.
With a new facility, Morgan Health Center will be able to better accommodate the needs of its patients. The new clinic will be more than 3,000 square feet and will include five exam rooms, a procedure room and new X-ray equipment. Additionally, the clinic will also employ a full-time Medical Doctor beginning in the summer of 2013.
"Our goal has always been to provide Morgan residents with compassionate primary care," said Chris Payne, clinic manager at Morgan Health Center. "Now we will have the ability to care for our patients and this community for a long time in a beautiful new building."
The clinic’s hours will remain the same Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. with the hopes of being able to offer Urgent Care hours in the near future.
