Blount County Health Dept. celebrates one year

The Blount County Health Department recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of their new building.

“A great example of why we’re so pleased with our current space is that we were able to serve 5,000 people at this beautiful new facility in the first two months of this year. Our increased capacity to serve the public has also allowed us to expand our ability to offer more services every day,” said Micky Roberts, County Health Director.

“The current building features three times the number of exam rooms as the previous location.”

Staff began transitioning into the new location in March of 2007 and held a grand opening the following month.

The new facility has allowed staff to shorten the waiting times for appointments and offers easier access to birth and death certificates. The department is located at 301 McGhee Street, in what was formerly the Blount County Public Library.

For more information about services or to schedule an appointment, call 865-983-4582.
