Health dept. open longer

November 22, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia-- Thomas County's health department will be open longer beginning next month.

Starting December 5th, it will be open Monday through Thursday from seven in the morning to six at night. On Fridays, the office will be open from 7:30 in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon.

Nurses say the new hours will allow them to better serve people. "It'll just give the public more options. People who work won't have to maybe take off work, or take as long off of work to come get their service that they need here," says Suzanne Redding.

The new hours will also allow parents to bring their kids in before school for pediatric services such as immunizations.
