AdvancedMD Celebrates Juneteenth: Offices Closed

As a Global Payments company, AdvancedMD is excited to celebrate and commemorate Juneteenth, a federal holiday celebrating the end of slavery in the United States after the Civil War on June 19. We will observe the holiday on Monday, June 20 and our offices will be closed.

A Brief History of Juneteenth

Juneteenth is also known as “Juneteenth Independence Day,” “Freedom Day,” or “Emancipation Day.” During the U.S. Civil War, Pres. Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 declaring freedom for three million slaves in the Confederate states. However, more than two years passed before the news reached African Americans living in Texas.

On June 19, 1865, about two months after the Confederate general Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox, Va., Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, to inform African Americans slaves of their freedom and that the Civil War had ended. The former slaves immediately celebrated with prayer, feasting, song, and dance.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
