April Luncheon Will Focus on Rural Emergency Healthcare Issues
April 2, 2015
11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Rossville Emergency Management Services Facility
Catered by: Wolf River Cafe
"Emergency Health Care Concerns and Solutions for Rural County Residents" will be the topic for the Fayette County Chamber's luncheon on Thursday, April 2, 2015. The recent closing of many rural hospitals are leaving counties in West Tennessee, and across the state, without quick access to emergency healthcare. As a result, county mayors are faced with tough decisions regarding how to meet their communities emergency care needs.
On April 2nd, the Fayette County Chamber will host a panel discussion of county mayors to discuss ideas, present options and take questions concerning this critical community service shortfall. Our panel will include Fayette County Mayor - Rhea Taylor, Haywood County Mayor - Franklin Smith, Decatur County Mayor - Mike Creasy and Hardeman County Mayor - Jimmy Sain. There will be a brief Q & A at the end of the panel discussions.
Hospital Wing is sponsoring the luncheon and will speak briefly about their service and will be taking membership registrations on site.
The luncheon will be held from 11:30am - 1:00pm at Rossville's Emergency Management Services Facility located at 380 Morrison in Rossville, TN. The public is welcome to attend. Admission is $10.00 per person. Please RSVP to 901-465-8690.
