Council OKs contract with health clinic operator

Columbus Council approved a contract today with a Georgia health care company to operate a medical clinic for city employees.

The one-year contract will pay TransformHealthRx of Atlanta and Statesboro a monthly fee of $35,707 for staffing of the clinic. The clinic site has not been decided.

The contract also calls for $75,000 for set-up costs, to be spread over 12 months.

Human Resources Director Tom Barron said it is possible that a clinic could be up and operating by April or May, but the location still must be determined.
