Elnora Eddings often walks a few blocks to the wellness center in Gretna for medical assistance. A "closed" sign now adorns the window. The facility has shut its doors forcing residents to seek medical help elsewhere.
Health officials weren't able to secure funding to keep the clinic afloat, and the nurse who helped run the facility left the area. Residents are hoping state and county officials will find funding to reopen the center, perhaps by next month.
