HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - A plan to move medical services onto a campus-style area is moving forward.

At a City Council meeting on Tuesday, council members voted 5-0 to allow Mayor Johnny Dupree to enter into a grant agreement for the project.

The Hattiesburg American reports (https://hatne.ws/1YxmkBH ) that the grant - not to exceed $448,868 - would come from the Mississippi Development Authority. With that money, the city would work on infrastructure for the medical clinic.

The plan for the campus calls for relocating several services - including pediatric, behavioral health, orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine and physical therapy - onto a single campus. Hattiesburg Clinic purchased 15 acres of property for the development.
