Dianne M. Parrotte Medical Clinic Dedicated

While the Emergency Medical Clinic has become a cornerstone for medical care in Ariel and the surrounding region since its 2015 grand opening, the generous support of Dr. Bob Shillman and the Shillman Foundation provided the final funds for the renovation of the facility.
