About Taylor Medical Center
Taylor Medical Center is a primary care facility that focuses on preventive health and chronic care management. Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne opened the Center in 2017 with the goal of being an advocate for patients and providing exceptional medical care. She was the first medical director of a clinic that served mostly underinsured and uninsured patients, who often carried a high burden of chronic conditions. Her style of care relies on the input of the patient, ensuring that they feel heard and seen. Dr. Taylor Moragne believes that each patient that enters her office deserves the best care possible regardless of socioeconomic status. Her motto is “Tailor your well-being”, and that's exactly how she works with patients.
Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne of Taylor Medical Center was nominated for the Frontline Medical Hero of the Year Award for her untiring service to the Jackson, TN community during the COVID-19 pandemic. While most businesses closed doors and providers worked from home, Dr. Taylor Moragne and the staff at Taylor Medical Center kept the doors open to the patients of Jackson.
Many patients found themselves without access to medical care and were unsure where to turn for help. Because most of these patients in this region of West TN are uninsured or underinsured, they have the highest burden of chronic health conditions, making them even more vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus.
These patients needed to have their illnesses managed, medications refilled, and guidance delivered about decreasing their risk and exposure during the pandemic. Dr. Taylor Moragne met and provided them with a COVID testing center at no cost. When LabCorp (the facility used to process the test) ran out of solution, swabs, and collection tubes, Dr. Taylor Moragne purchased these items to assure testing. She also became a community partner with the local Health Department to provide free masks to the Jackson community. Today, the Taylor Medical Center is providing free vaccinations to uninsured individuals in the Jackson, TN community, and is doing its part to get the vaccines into arms to beat the COVID pandemic.
Taylor Medical Center won two Silver Stevie Awards: for COVID-19 Response Categories - Frontline Medical Hero of the Year, and for Company / Organization Categories - Minority-Owned Business of the Year in The 2021 American Business Awards®.
