E.J. Noble Looks To Close 2 Clinics

Tools

Citing a drop in patient visits, the financially-troubled E.J. Noble Hospital is looking to close two of its satellite health clinics.

It has formally asked the state Health Department to allow it to shut down the clinics in Harrisville and Russell.

E.J. Noble, which is currently managed by Canton-Potsdam Hospital, has been trying to reorganize since the state shut down its laboratory over serious deficiencies last September.

Rebecca Faber, spokesperson for Canton-Potsdam Hospital, said the Harrisville clinic is expected to close in late August or early September.

She said the Russell clinic unofficially closed during the winter when the nurse practitioner took a different job. 

Faber said Canton-Potsdam Hospital is analyzing all of E.J. Noble's services to stabilize its finances, but there are no plans to close any other clinics at this time.
