Statement from MCN Secretary of Health Regarding Health Facilities Operations During Partial Government Shutdown

Dec. 27, 2018

From the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Secretary of Health:

“As the federal government has reached a partial shutdown, many employees, patients and citizens of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health have questions and concerns regarding the operations of our clinics and hospitals.

I would like to reassure everyone that the operations of our hospitals and clinics will remain open without disruption. With the hard work of our employees and the cooperation of our patients, the Department of Health is financially prepared to absorb this shutdown. However, the federal government will not be issuing payments to fund our operations until a budget agreement has been reached.”
