In context: The company behind the former Gordon Hospital — known today as AdventHeath Gordon — has formalized ties to the former Murray Medical Center in Chatsworth. The seller was the Hospital Authority of Murray County. The hospital, with 42 beds and around 100 affiliated physicians, offers emergency care as well as advanced outpatient digital radiology, laboratory, surgery and respiratory therapy. AdventHealth describes itself as followings: “Our Christian mission, shared vision, common values and focus on whole-person health is our commitment to making communities healthier with a unified system: nearly 50 hospital campuses and hundreds of care sites in diverse markets throughout nine states.”
Media release: AdventHealth officially purchased Murray Medical Center, now known as AdventHealth Murray, on Dec. 15. In 2015, AdventHealth partnered with the Murray County Hospital Authority Board to assume operations of the hospital.
“The last five years have been full of growth and advancement, and I believe we are just getting started,” said Mike Murrill, president and CEO of AdventHealth Murray. “We are excited about this milestone and look forward to a future of helping our community feel whole.”
AdventHealth and Murray County officials have worked together closely to extend health care services and provide access to an elevated level of care within the community. Since beginning to serve the Murray County community, AdventHealth has provided additional primary care and family medicine options and access to specialties such as general surgery, orthopedics, OB/GYN, urology, physical therapy and more. AdventHealth Murray’s emergency department has been renovated and expanded and the hospital’s imaging technology has been upgraded with a new mammogram unit and the Siemens SOMATOM Definition AS CT scanner. Key partnerships have also been made with regional leading medical centers in Cardiac Care and Neurology Care.
“AdventHealth has given our community greater access to top-level health care,” said Nathan Leonard, a member of the Murray County Hospital Authority Board. “I’m excited to see how the hospital will continue to grow in the years to come.”
