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.
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. Warm sunny days and cool nights bring a gentle winter season. The smell of oak logs burning in your fireplace and the pale glow of your neighbor’s porch light down the road tells you they’re home.
When you live in Cocke County 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 'til you smell the forest in the morning - talk about relaxing!
