Mercy Clinic officials say health clinics in three Oklahoma City area Wal-Mart stores will be closed due to a lack of patients.
The clinic in west Edmond will close July 31 and two clinics in northwest Oklahoma City will close Aug. 31. Patton says the 16 employees of the three clinics will be offered jobs at other Mercy locations.
The clinics inside the Wal-Mart stores were designed to treat patients for minor illnesses such as the cold, a mild case of flu or a child with a fever. Patton says other Mercy clinics in Edmond and northwest Oklahoma City offer a higher level of medical care and attract more patients.
