Tennessee Department of Health Ranks High in Dental Programs
Columbia, March 2, 2006
Today, representatives of the Tennessee Department of Health joined Maury County officials and other state and local government officials in breaking ground for the new Maury County Health Department facility. The new Health Department location at Highway 412 at the Highway 43 exchange, in Columbia, is scheduled to be complete in early 2007. In May 2005, Governor Phil Bredesen proposed $1 million in Healthcare Safety Net funding for a new facility for the Maury County Health Department. The funding, which was approved by the Tennessee General Assembly, will assist in the addition of primary care services for local residents currently without health insurance.
