Zero Out-of-Pocket Health Facility Opens For Springfield City/County Employees

SPRINGFIELD/ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A joint effort between Robertson County, the School District, and the City of Springfield will bring health care to city and county employees at no charge.

According to Press Liaison Jim Bellis with Robertson County Schools, to qualify for the free medical services you must be a Robertson County employee (including all Robertson County Schools employees and bus drivers working over 25.5 hours per week) and all Springfield city employees.

According to the city of Springfield, the three organizations joined forces to offer the Employee Health Clinic that will offer first-class healthcare in a safe and convenient setting at 900 South Brown Street in Springfield. The clinic opened its doors to employees on August 1, 2022, and will provide services including physicals, allergy treatment, eye care, well exams, wound & foot care, and much more. In addition to eligible employees, dependents are also covered.

“It should be a powerful recruiting tool to attract employees across the county and the city,” Bellis said

“The county offered the building and Robertson County Schools renovated it,” Bellis said. Robertson County, Robertson County Schools, and Springfield obtained a grant and it took around a year to complete the renovations.
