CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis continues to unfold, Church Health has modified clinic and appointment procedures to protect our patients, employees and volunteers from unnecessary risk of exposure to COVID-19.
Our Walk-in Clinic is Open By Appointment Only! If you are sick or injured, you must call 901-272-0003 to make an appointment and to receive appointment instructions. If you do have an appointment, no more than 1 healthy person (child, parent, interpreter) should accompany a patient to an appointment, and then ONLY if you require personal assistance.
All patients should check their Patient Portal frequently for updates. If you have problems logging in, please call 901-272-0003.
Health Coaches will make phone consults and mail resources to patients.
Our registered dietitian will have all visits via telehealth. Please call 901-701-2220 to schedule your appointment.
DRIVE THROUGH COVID-19 TESTING
Church Health has partnered with University Clinical Health (UCH) to offer expanded opportunities for COVID 19 testing. COVID testing is offered at no cost at our Crosstown Concourse location (Claybrook Entrance) on Tuesday – Thursday from 8 am – 11 am. You do not have to be a patient to be tested. We are, however, prioritizing testing for individuals presenting symptoms or who have known exposure. All individuals who go through testing at Church Health will receive a box of food, courtesy of the Mid-South Food Bank. Bilingual staff are available. Test results available within 24-48 hours.
UCH will now schedule Church Health’s COVID drive through testing appointments as well as alert patients when the results are obtained. Here are the expanded options to schedule testing appointments:

CLERGY COVID-19 RESPONSE E-NEWS
Memphis Clergy COVID-19 Response serves as a resource for faith community leaders in response to COVID-19. We will share how faith-based organizations can adapt and continue to serve their communities.
RESOURCES AND INFORMATION FOR FAITH COMMUNITIES ON CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19
Congregations often first hear that our friends or church family members are sick through the congregational prayer chain, emails, or exchanging information on Sunday mornings. At a time when many members may be anxious about the potential impact of COVID-19, congregations can offer trustworthy information when questions arise and also help to slow the transmission of the virus. Church Health works closely with public health experts and health care partners to ensure we have the most reliable and current information available for our partners in faith:
MESSAGE FROM DR. MORRIS, CEO
Church Health’s mission is “to reclaim the biblical commitment to care for our bodies and spirits.” As we face COVID-19, we are doing ever more to focus our energy, attention, and resources to readily care for the bodies and spirits of all who seek help and guidance and all who work alongside us.
We must do what it takes to care for the most vulnerable people in our community and continue our most critical services.
Friends, Church Health has always practiced sound safety and prevention measures. And it works. We will continue to provide care, counsel and support to uninsured, underserved patients and their families who need us every single day.
We thank you for your prayers, your generosity and your talents that help us Care for One Another.
