SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A PeaceHealth urgent care clinic is back open after a nearly six-month closure caused by a sickening smell.
A spokeswoman said the Gateway Urgent Care clinic reopened Monday, Dec. 9, and resumes its regular hours of 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
In June PeaceHealth closed the clinic after employees reported a waxy, chemical odor that they said was giving them headaches and making them feel nauseated.
The spokeswoman said they worked with trained professionals to inspect the facility. Following those inspections, new ventilation equipment was installed.
PeaceHealth also has urgent care clinics in Eugene on West 11th Avenue and on Valley River Drive.
