Clinic use said to be sparse
Attendance at Washington County's satellite health clinics has improved but remains sparse.
Washington County Health Officer Robert Parker told the County Commissioners Tuesday that the county health advisory board was looking at ways to cut costs at the wellness clinics while providing services people want.
Parker said he hoped to keep all of the clinics open.
The wellness programs in Clear Spring, Hancock, Keedysville, Noland Village and two immunization clinics had a total of 417 visits through November, up from 299 last year.
But all of the increase came from the weekly clinic in Hancock started in January and the immunization clinics, which also started this year.
