Allied Health Services moved from its East Main Street location to Murphy Road after city officials discovered the clinic was too close to a day care center. Though, the new location of the clinic is still causing concerns for many residents.
The clinic sits near Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center and a pediatrics center. It’s also just a few blocks away from a residential neighborhood. Parents are worried the patients will come into their neighborhoods and around their children.
One patient NewsWatch 12 spoke with says she is also a parent and trying to recover so she can be there for her family.
“No matter where this clinic is, it has to be somewhere. We have to have this kind of resource. People come from Coos Bay, Grants Pass, I myself drive from Trail,” explained the patient.
The clinic in Medford serves hundreds of patients in Jackson and Josephine counties.
