Healthy Start - This federally funded program provides education as well as emotional support to young mothers who have had their first child. The program has reached national recognition for successfully reducing the incidence of child abuse and neglect, increased immunization rates for young children, reducing subsequent pregnancies, and detecting and remedying developmental delays early in young children. It is directed through the Tennessee Department of Health and is funded by a combination of State and Federal Family Preservation/Family Support Funds. Services are available in Chester, Crockett, and Madison counties. For more information call 731-541-4385.
Lullaby Lane - This program offers a way to honor your baby with a personalized ceramic tile of your design, created by a professional artist and placed on our Lullaby Lane wall, which is located on the hallway near the well-baby nursery. Funds from the sale of the tiles help to provide new programs and equipment for the Center. Click here for more information about West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation.
