November 2011

The Urgent Care Experts division of InterMed Has Been Contracted to assist with the Development and Implementation of a Brand New Urgent Care Facility, the Taborian Urgent Care Center of Mound Bayou, in Mississippi.

MOUND BAYOU — Thursday was a special day for U.S. Congressman Bennie Thompson and the Mound Bayou community.Working hand and hand with the rural development division of the United State Department of Agriculture to secure funding, Thompson announced on Thursday that the Taborian Hospital will once again open its doors and receive patients.The USDA announced earlier in the week that a Rural Development Grant has been approved in the amount of $2,993,954 to restore the dilapidated building and open the Taborian Urgent Care Center of Mound Bayou.

“This project has been somewhat of a dream for me since taking office,” said Thompson. “A major concern of mine has always been centered around providing adequate health care to everyone in Mississippi. Many residents in rural towns across the state live everyday with the realization that they will have to travel elsewhere in the case of a medical emergency. That should not be the case and here in Mound Bayou, residents will once again have access to a quality medical facility.”

The Taborian Hospital of Mound Bayou, a facility developed and financed by the Knights and Daughters of Tabor organization, first opened its doors in 1942. Focused on attainment of a better life for the people of Mound Bayou, the Taborian Hospital secured adequate medical treatment for the all black community.

Founded by Rev. Moses Dickson, the Knights and Daughters of the Tabor is an African-American fraternal order.

The society explains that there was an antislavery secret organization of Negroes in the South that numbered nearly 147,000 fighting for the Union during the Civil War. After the war, an organizational roll call showed that only seven members survived the war effort.

From these seven men, Dickson formed the International Order of Twelve, Knights and Daughters of Tabor. This name originated from the original Knights of Liberty and a mountain in Galilee, Mount Tabor.

Mississippi’s chapter of the Tabor organization began in 1889 under the leadership of Mound Bayou native and Chief Grand Mentor Perry Monroe Smith, who was instrumental in bringing the Tabors to the Mississippi Delta to promote African-American progress.

“Upon completion, this hospital will be the area’s first urgent care medical facility,” said Trina George, state director for the USDA Rural Development agency. “Currently, there are no urgent care facilities within an 80 mile radius of the Mound Bayou area.”

According to the Academy of Urgent Care Medicine, Urgent Care Medicine is the provision of immediate medical service offering outpatient care for the treatment of acute and chronic illness and injury. It requires a broad and comprehensive fund of knowledge to provide such care. Excellence in care for patients with complex and or unusual conditions is founded on the close communication and collaboration between the urgent care medicine physician, the specialists and the primary physicians.

The Taborian Hospital was the first medical institutions of health with hospital facilities and equipment wholly owned and operated by the black race. It was also the first medical institution in America that had an all black staff.
