Jimmy Morgan, DO
Mercy Convenient Care
With a career in emergency medicine spanning 25 years,
Dr. Jimmy Morgan knows how to think quickly, act fast
and solve immediate problems.
In his current role as a Mercy Convenient Care physician, Dr.
Morgan and his team are always on hand to help.
“Patients start coming in early, usually as soon as we open at
7 am,” he said. “We see anywhere from 35-60 patients a day.”
That’s because Mercy Convenient Care is available to people
when they can’t get in to see their regular doctor. They can
walk in without an appointment and be seen by a health care
professional for the same cost as a visit with their regular
doctor. Mercy Convenient Care treats minor health conditions
such as coughs, colds, the flu, sore throats and more.
As Dr. Morgan said, “We’re the safety net for the populace.”
Dr. Morgan said being there for patients’ immediate needs
has always been what’s attracted him to his profession.
Before medical school, he was a paramedic in Joplin for 11
years. Life in the fast lane is what led him to the next step in
his career. He attended medical school at Oklahoma State
University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa and then
completed a residency in emergency medicine there.
Over the years, Dr. Morgan has used his expertise to assist
several EMS agencies in the area. He currently serves as the
EMS medical director for METS, Newton County Ambulance
District and Barton County Ambulance District; EMS medical
director for the fire departments in Joplin, Webb City, Carl
Junction and Redings Mill; and he is the medical liaison
for three area 911 call centers. He is also on the Disaster
Medical Team for Oklahoma, which deploys to disaster sites.
In connection with this, Dr. Morgan has previously been
deployed to the Oklahoma City bombing and the World
Trade Center terror attack.
“I like taking care of immediate needs and helping
people right away,” Dr. Morgan said. “And you could
say I thrive on controlled chaos.”
