Reprieve short-lived, Washington county low-income clinic to close for good
The Olympian, March 10, 2008
A reprieve for a low-income clinic in Spokane has proved to be short-lived. Operators of the People's Clinic say it will close on May 15. The 1,500 student and low-income patients are being directed to other potential sources of healthcare, and efforts are being made for nurse-practitioners at the clinic to work elsewhere. The clinic has been run by the Washington State University Intercollegiate College of Nursing. It stopped taking new patients at the end of last month.
