Kennesaw State President Dan Papp said the university could no longer afford to operate the $200,000-a-year clinic.
The clinic treated 1,609 patients during 2012, with some of those patients seen multiple times, Kennesaw State spokeswoman Arlethia Perry-Johnson said.
Run by the university’s WellStar College of Health and Human Services, the clinic provided office visits, phone consultations and prescription refills to the under-insured, as well as the uninsured. It also provided Kennesaw State nursing and social work students with hands-on experience.
MUST Ministries President and CEO Ike Reighard said his nonprofit would continue to provide access to health care and is in talks to find a qualified replacement.
