Opening a Zero-Cost Health Facility for City/County of Springfield Employees

Springfield City/County Employee Zero-Cost Health Facility Openeds

SPRINGFIELD/ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A joint effort between Robertson County, the school district and the city of Springfield will bring free health care to city and county employees.

According to Robertson County Schools Liaison Jim Bellis, to receive free medical services, you must be a Robertson County employee (including all Robertson County Schools employees and bus drivers working more than 25.5 hours per week) and all City of Springfield employees.

According to the City of Springfield, the three organizations have joined forces to provide the Employee Health Clinic which will provide first-class health care in a safe and convenient setting at 900 South Brown Street in Springfield. The clinic opened to employees on August 1, 2022 and will provide services including physical exams, allergy treatment, eye care, health screenings, wound and foot care, and more. In addition to eligible employees, dependents are also covered.

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

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