Temporary Saturday Brookside Community Health Center Closure Disappointing

The following is a letter sent to Jamaica Plain News and a response from the Brigham and Women's Hospital:

I received some heart breaking news. Brookside Community Health Center will no longer be open on Saturdays starting in 2024. I think that this decision from Brigham and Women's Hospital does no good to the community. I have been a patient at Brookside for over 20 years and took pride in knowing that the clinic has services and Saturday mornings availability. Now, I will have to find a new clinic all together.
