Rural Medical Services, Inc. (RMS) is a community health center serving Cocke and Jefferson Counties, Tennessee, and surrounding areas. RMS has five primary care clinics which are located in Newport, Cosby, Parrottsville, Grassy Fork, and Chestnut Hill.
Newport is the seat of Cocke County and a quiet southern town. You’ll find shopping, hiking, scenic wilderness, fine dining, and a very low cost of living. Broadway, Newport’s downtown, is narrow and you’ll want to watch the single traffic signals above the intersections, but the folks are friendly and want to meet you. The Pigeon River runs through downtown Newport. The City Park, Cocke County Museum, and the Community Center are popular family destinations. You’ll find camping areas, churches, restaurants, service stations, county and city government, and your Chamber of Commerce in Newport all waiting to make your life in Cocke County pleasant and enjoyable.
These Great Smoky Mountains have been welcoming folks relocating just like you for more than two hundred years. Now, Cocke County, Tennessee, is even more attractive for more than just the temperate climate, low cost of living, and laid-back Southern lifestyle. Isn’t that appealing to you? There’s not much changed lately. You will find friends and neighbors are willing to lend a helping hand when you need one. And churches are filled on Sundays. Doesn’t that have great value to you? Warm sunny days and cool nights bring a gentle winter season. A little snow but not much. The smell of oak logs burning in your fireplace tickles your nose and the pale glow of your neighbor’s porch light down the road tells you they’re home. You’re glad you’re at home in Cocke County and the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.
Isn’t it about time you took a good look at what Time Magazine pronounced as one of seven areas in America to visit? Or to relocate? You’ll spend weekends in the Great Smoky Mountains high atop an Appalachian peak, nestled in a deep “holler,” or along one of the hundreds of fish-filled streams and creeks in the county. Wait till you smell the forest in the morning. Talk about relaxing!
