Top 20 Critical Access Hospital in Patient Satisfaction
Murray County Medical Center (MCMC) is a county-owned, 25-bed Critical Access Hospital located in Slayton, MN. Recognized as a 2018 Top 20 in Patient Satisfaction by the National Rural Health Association, MCMC offers state-of-the-art equipment and a compassionate and caring staff that is well-trained in the latest protocols for medical and surgical care.

Equipped with many modern patient rooms and two nurse work stations, many of our private hospital rooms have a nurse server; a secure area for medication and supplies that can be accessed from the hallway. This allows for faster patient care and reduced patient room noise. Fourteen of our private rooms have a private bathroom. These rooms were designed for flexibility and can accommodate patients requiring skilled nursing care and a variety of outpatient services, including chemotherapy. Two nurse work stations are centrally located for effective and efficient patient care.
