HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The City of Hattiesburg will soon begin renovations on a 4th Street building that will serve as a new health clinic for city employees. Tuesday, the city council unanimously approved an agreement with a company called Medical Analysis to operate the facility.

Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny Dupree said the clinic will save money for both the city and employees who choose to use it. Retired city employees will also be able to use the facility.

He said basic services such as check ups will be provided there, with little or no co-payments for employees and their families.

The clinic will be located next to the Southern Miss track and field facility.

Dupree said it will take about four months to renovate the building. It will be open from 8 a.m. To 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

"To start off with, we're going to have one nurse practitioner, and we're going to have one receptionist/phlebotomist that will come in and be able to assist the nurse practitioner," Dupree said. "Of course, the nurse practitioner will have to be supervised by our physician. That's the way it works in Mississippi," he said.

Hattiesburg currently has more than 700 employees.
