West Tennessee Healthcare is closing the emergency room and other services in Humboldt to consolidate services to Milan General Hospital.
In a press release, on Tuesday night, the health system’s Board of Trustees approved a resolution to spend over $5.5 million dollars to renovate and expand the emergency department in Milan.
Emergency room, outpatient lab, and radiology services at Humboldt will be consolidated with the existing services provided at Milan and North Hospital in Jackson.
