YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK—Yosemite National Park will keep its medical clinic open after officials found a new health services provider.
The Fresno Bee reported Saturday that National Park Service employees from the U.S. Public Health Service will take over the Yosemite Medical Clinic.
The service already inspects food and monitors drinking water at the iconic California park.
It provides similar medical services on Indian reservations and in rural communities. But it's the first time the service will staff a park medical clinic.
Yosemite's 24-hour-a-day clinic serves 7,000 patients each year.
Dallas-based Tenet HealthSystem had been scheduled to close the money-losing clinic Dec. 31 after operating it for 15 years.
