Open House for New Sevier County Health Department
NASHVILLE – David Reagan, MD, PhD, chief medical officer for the Tennessee Department of Health, will join other state and local officials on Tuesday, September 18, for an open house celebration at the new location of the Sevier County Health Department in Sevierville.
In June 2011, the Sevier County government took possession of the former Fort Sanders Sevier Medical Center and began planning for renovation of the facility to house the Sevier County Health Department, a satellite campus of East Tennessee State University and a Veterans Administration medical facility. The renovation for the Sevier County Health Department portion alone was a $3 million project. Sevier County received $399,690 in federal special needs funding for the Women, Infants and Children program area of the clinic.
Prior to the relocation, the former Sevier County Health Department was housed in a 12,000 square foot facility. The new clinic is 29,614 square feet with 21 examination rooms, a breastfeeding room, a classroom and a demonstration kitchen.
