The ribbon cutting celebration was attended by local and state elected officials and community leaders, including Cobb County Board of Commissioners Chairman Mike Boyce; Cobb County Commissioner Lisa Cupid; City of Smyrna Mayor Max Bacon; and Dr. Carol Holtz, Cobb County Board of Health Chair.
The new Smyrna Public Health Center will provide improved access and service quality for residents visiting programs such as Women, Infant and Child Nutrition (WIC), Family Planning, Adult Health and Immunizations.
Dr. Holtz recognized the need in Smyrna and the south Cobb area for additional clinical services. “I am thrilled that we have been able to launch these services for our Smyrna community and make those services and our WIC Clinic more accessible.”

Additional financial support came from the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) WIC, Cobb & Douglas Public Health and the City of Smyrna. “This is the kind of project the SPLOST was meant to fund,” said Boyce. “This is another incredible partnership project in Cobb.”
