UT Health Center at Tyler will continue to provide medical care to Smith County inmates for at least one more month.
Monday morning, the Smith County Commissioner's Court extended UTHCT's contract for another 30 days. A long term contract for jail medical services has been put out for bid. But, the Commissioner's Court says it needs some more time to finalize the details.
