Grand Opening for New Montgomery County WIC Clinic
NASHVILLE – David Reagan, MD, PhD, chief medical officer for the Tennessee Department of Health, will join other state and local officials on Thursday, May 24, for the grand opening celebration at the new Women, Infants and Children clinic at the Montgomery County Health Department in Clarksville.
The Montgomery County WIC clinic is the largest rural WIC clinic in Tennessee. During the past year, this facility has served more than 10,600 clients. More than one-third of these clients are military families.
Montgomery County received $2.1 million in federal special needs funding in 2010 to improve services for WIC clients. The funding has been used to add an 8,000 square foot wing to the Montgomery County Health Department facility to provide a confidential environment for WIC clients and provide them better access to other health department services offered at the clinic.
