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.
Effective March 23, ALL patients, even walk-in, first 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.
In the interest of everyone’s health, we will reschedule existing wellness exams, physicals, and routine screening visits to reduce unnecessary contact in our clinic. If you are undergoing active treatment for a medical problem, please contact your provider before a follow-up visit.
All patients should check their Patient Portal frequently for updates. If you have problems logging in, please call 901-272-0003.
The Dental Clinic, Eye Clinic and Physical Rehabilitation are closed to non-emergent patients. If a patient has a dental, eye or physical rehabilitation emergency, they must call 901-272-0003 to schedule an appointment.
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.
The Behavioral Health Clinic will have on-site crisis consults and phone consults.
In order to keep everyone safe, Church Health has canceled all programming through April 2020. Thank you for your understanding as we all adjust to changes in the face of the COVID-19. For updates, please check churchhealth.org/events

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.
