Coffee County Health Department officials are planning to close the Manchester location in the coming months due to staffing shortages. The consolidation of all its services at the Tullahoma clinic will be a temporary measure, until a new proposed 14,000-square-foot facility can be built in the Joint Industrial Park.
The move to the Tullahoma location could be short-lived due to the state Highway 55 road widening project that will take a portion of the already tight parking area at the Wilson Avenue Tullahoma location.
The resolution will go before Health, Welfare and Recreation for a recommendation to full commission. Authorization for the Health Department to consolidate will go before the full commission in the March meeting.
