The reason given for closing the clinic is that it is not producing ENOUGH profits. I find this decision to be misguided and very harmful to the public that HRRMC serves.
HRRMC’s decision to close the clinic was prompted by the news that both of its internal medicine physicians would be leaving the practice. Dr. John Ellis is retiring at the end of 2012, and Dr. Laura Donigan is relocating to Denver at the end of August 2013.
The manner in which the situation was handled raises compelling questions. Did the police officer overreact, taking action based on the symbol’s message? And were Bustos’ free speech rights violated because of this?
Photography, paintings, jewelry, spa products, home decor and other items handcrafted by HRRMC employees will be for sale. A portion of the proceeds benefits the HRRMC Foundation.

This course is serious fun while building a foundation of skills for river running, play-boating or slalom racing. Watching children of all shapes and sizes load into boats, this sport is a great equalizer. Smaller, less athletic kids held their own with big, coordinated children who participate in every seasonal sport available.
