    AdventHealth McKee Clinic To Open Soon

    By Sue Caldwell
    The City of McKee held their regular September counsel meeting last week with all members in attendance. Mayor Tompkins called the meeting to order at 6:00 pm. The first order of business was to accept the minutes from the August counsel meeting which was approved by all members except Joe McKinney, who abstained due to being absent at that particular meeting. The first item of business was AdventHealth. Mayor Tompkins introduced Randy Craft, the spokesperson for AdventHealth Manchester, who outlined the plans for the new clinic that is opening very soon in McKee. Mr. Craft said, "AdventHealth was very excited to be opening the clinic here and that they wanted to service our local people as well as employ local citizens."
