If you are thinking of retiring to Tennessee, you owe it to yourself to take a look at Cookeville. You will find that we have all the amenities of a big city, in a small town atmosphere. Many retirees that I've worked with have asked about the local hospitals. I can proudly say that our hospital has won numerous awards and offers top notch care. They are happy to give visitor tours and answer questions.
