A new medical clinic opened Tuesday in Independence County, with supporters saying the 15,000-square-foot clinic will meet the needs of residents. 

The White River Health System hosted a ribbon cutting for the opening of the WRMC Medical Complex Southside. The clinic is located at 1217 Batesville Blvd., across from the Batesville Municipal Airport.

Several area business and chamber officials attended the event. According to a media release, the clinic will have Dr. Shannon Swift, Internal Medicine/Pediatrics; Dr. Ian Parker, Family/Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine; and Jennifer Blaney, APRN, Adult Medicine, seeing patients at the facility.
