New CEO of TPCA Visting MCMC

Morgan County Medical Center (MCMC) is welcoming the new chief executive officer of the Tennessee Primary Care Association as part of its celebration of National Health Center Week, August. 12-18.

“We value the relationship we have with Tennessee Primary Care Association and are delighted to have its new executive director Terri Sabella visit our clinic,” said Theresa Brock, CEO of MCMC. “It is especially fitting that she is visiting us during National Health Center Week.”

“I am excited to visit Morgan County Medical Center during National Health Center Week. The national theme this year is ‘Celebrating Health Centers: Home of America’s Health Care Heroes,’ and this is a wonderful opportunity to honor the health center, its leadership, staff, and governing board for all they do to  ensure access to quality health care for everyone in the community,” Sabella said.

Community Health Centers provide services to patients regardless of their ability to pay or whether or not they have health insurance. They receive grant funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) which allows them to treat low income individuals on a sliding fee basis and supplements payments received from insurance companies and self-pay individuals.

“One of the things that makes community health centers special is their ability to reflect the uniqueness of their community by delivering services designed to address local needs with community-based leadership and governance,” Sabella said. “The heroes at Morgan County Medical Center are more than health care providers; they are neighbors helping neighbors with everything from immunizations and parenting classes to smoking cessation and behavioral health and so much more.”

MCMC is one of 35 Community Health Centers operating in Tennessee and it has served residents of Morgan and surrounding counties for more than 40 years.

“Throughout Tennessee and across the nation, health centers share a commitment to their communities and a passion for quality in healthcare that is unsurpassed. That commitment makes a positive impact on the lives of individuals, families, and communities,” Sabella concluded.
