Williamson County Health Department


The Williamson County Health Department is a local health department that provides public health services. Located in Franklin and Fairview, clinics are part of a centralized health department structure of rural county health departments under the support of the Mid-Cumberland Regional Health Office as well as the State of Tennessee’s Department of Health.


Health Department staff members are gearing up for the "Back to School" rush by prepping the clinic for the thousands of visitors we anticipate over the next three weeks.

Dr. Hutcheson was appointed the County Health Director for Williamson County in 1932 before later being appointed as the Commissioner for the Tennessee Department of Health in 1943. Dr. Hutcheson served in several different capacities throughout his career including Assistant Commissioner and Local Health Service Director. Dr. Hutcheson wrote several published articles and was instrumental in TB testing, management and care. Dr. Hutcheson was a true public health champion of the era.
