Busy health clinic in Clarksville getting bigger

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's busiest rural Women, Infants and Children clinic is getting bigger.

The facility in Montgomery County has broken ground for an 8,000-square-foot wing. It served more than 9,800 patients in the past year, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.

It provides support for the sprawling Fort Campbell post nearby; approximately 31 percent of the clinic users in Montgomery County are military families.

Officials said the new wing will allow for better nutrition education service and other benefits.
