Spring Valley – Community Complaints Against Federal Founded Clinic


    Spring Valley – The Ben Gilman Medical and Dental Clinic agreed to open seven days a week following complaints that its policy of closing on Saturdays – because the staff observes Sabbath – was preventing members of the predominantly working-class community from getting basic health care.
