Rockford Clinic Closing For Good

Robin Marty

Despite finally getting permission to reopen, the clinic is going to remain shuttered.

Despite making the required “necessary” changes needed after the enforcement of a TRAP law, a clinic in Northern Illinois is reporting that it has decided not to reopen after all.

The newspaper reports the clinic was having trouble hiring new staff.
