Baptist Memorial Hospital - Tipton
Approximately 18 miles from Memphis, Covington is in one of the fastest growing counties in the State of Tennessee and the mid-south region. The county offers all the advantages of small-town living with the nearby amenities of a major city. Some 80 acres encompass the Cobb-Parr Memorial Park which houses many special facilities and serves the most serious recreation enthusiast. The park is used for many special community events including the Tipton County Bar-B-Que Festival held each year in the fall. It also serves as the home of the the Covington Integrated Arts Academy and the Tipton County Alternative Learning Center grounds. This unique school-park recreation area is a focal point for the entire community.
