More Than a Hospital
In 1949 Murray Medical Center was built to care for the citizens of Murray County. 64 years later, our success is a tribute to the patients, employees and physicians that have made us great. Over the years we have made lots of changes — from our state-of-the-art emergency department addition in 2005 to the recent addition of advanced digital imaging in our outpatient radiology department. We work hard each day to meet the healthcare needs of our community. In 2012 we became an independent hospital and are now poised to become a bigger contributor to our community than ever before.
At Murray Medical Center we realize that we aren’t just doctors & nurses, we are your friends and neighbors and are committed to contributing to the advancement of healthcare access in our community. Read More…
