Several Tennessee health clinics close; nonprofit to step in

MEMPHIS (AP) — A Tennessee nonprofit is stepping in after several low-income health care clinics closed suddenly late last year.

The Commercial Appeal reported Friday that nonprofit Cherokee Health Systems has taken over Resurrection Health's three closed Memphis clinics and plans to build up the organization.

Resurrection Health CEO Rick Donlon says financial issues, including cut federal funding, forced the organization to fold just three years after launching.

Cherokee Health Systems CEO Dennis Freeman says the nonprofit is keeping the clinics open and patients can either continue to visit the clinics or get help transferring to another.

Donlon says Resurrection Health's clinics served about 35,000 people last year.

The newspaper reports the shutdown caused 25 new doctors in residency training to lose their jobs.
