Lyon-Martin Merger Keeps Women's Clinic Open

It's official: Lyon-Martin Health Services is merging with HealthRIGHT 360, which means the women's clinic known for serving the LGBTQ community is keeping its doors open.

Lyon-Martin has been the go-to place for women in need of health care, providing a safe and non-judgmental environment for marginalized clients. Everything was great until 2011, when the clinic nearly closed its doors while faced with an amassing $1 million debt. The community pulled through, collecting more than $100,000 in pledges and hosting fundraisers that kept the clinic afloat.

But that was one-time money, and the clinic needed to make other plans for its future.
