A Statement from Murfreesboro Medical Clinic

June 22nd, 2020

As physicians and medical professionals, we take an oath to protect humans and take care of all, no matter who they are or what they look like.We have a sacred responsibility to heal.

This is best exemplified by the analogy of caring for a wound. We clear out the infections from a wound either by washing it profusely or by literally cutting out the infected tissue. Then, we sew the skin back or allow the wound to heal from the bottom up if the area is too unwell.In order to foster healing, at times, we even have to take medications or use special products to provide a scaffold for healing. Either way, the skin will bind itself back together when we provide a clean, healthy, stable environment for healing to occur.

In this time, as has been since the dawn of our nation and our people, racism is a festering infection that lies deep within our society. It is a wound that continually reopens as we have not truly rooted out all of the illness. Our hope is that we truly debride the wounds,take our antibiotics, and allow for a lasting and true healing of our people and our society.

As an organization, Murfreesboro Medical Clinic denounces all forms of prejudice, but more specifically we denounce racism and racial injustice. We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters with black and brown skin that have been victims of injustice. Our physicians and staff are committed to ensuring that racism is not tolerated within our organization or our community.

As of July 1, 2020, face coverings (covering the wearer’s nose and mouth) will be required at all MMC locations for all patients and visitors ages 2 and above. Due to an increase in COVID-19 positive cases locally, across our state and around the country, MMC believes that it is in the best interests of our community, patients and staff. While this may not be convenient, our goal is to protect our community. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own face coverings to enter the building. If patients or visitors do not have a face covering they will be given one. Any person who chooses not to comply with this policy will have their appointment rescheduled. Thank you for understanding. 

Your health is our mission.
