Coweta Health Department opens in its new facility

By ELIZABETH MELVILLE elizabeth@newnan.com Monday was the first day of operations at the newly constructed Coweta County Health Department located at 70 Hospital Road. Nurse Manager Alice Jackson reports that it was a good first day for employees.
"Each day we get a little more settled," said Jackson on Tuesday. "We've had a few phone and computer glitches, but it's mostly minor things." Clinics were also expected to resume at the department on Tuesday. The health department was closed to patients last week while staff relocated from the old facility on Jackson Street to its new location near Hospital Road's intersection with the Newnan bypass. Patients are being encouraged to schedule an appointment rather than show up in hopes of being seen. The health department has a temporary phone number, 770-683-0497, and temporary fax number, 770-683-0545. "We will use these until we can resume our regular number," said Jackson. Jackson has asked for a grace period while employees implement and learn to use the new phone system and new computers. If phone calls aren't returned in a timely manner, try again, she suggested. "This is going to be an exciting adventure," said Jackson. "Please bear with us as we continue to work with clients." The hours of operation for the department are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
