Pico-Union Clinic Struggling With Financial, Internal Strife
A community health center in Pico-Union is grappling with financial strain and internal management issues. Since it opened in 1983, Clinica MonseÃ±or Oscar A. Romero has provided health services to undocumented residents and other members of the local community. However, officials say the clinic is under financial pressure because of the economic downturn and a growing number of uninsured patients. In addition, observers say management and staffing issues are compounding the clinic's problems.
