Doctor’s office re-opens Phil Campbell clinic
Businesses and individuals in Phil Campbell have been busy the past three months getting back on their feet after the devastating E-F5 tornado destroyed a good portion of the town on April 27.
Among those businesses that are beginning to get things back to normal is the Phil Campbell Medical Clinic owned and operated by Dr. Keith Morrow.
Morrow’s clinic was leveled by the 200 mph winds that swept through the city, but he temporarily opened his practice inside the Phil Campbell Rescue Squad building just days after the disaster.
Nurse practitioner Jean Hester said they wanted to get up and running so they could continue to be of service to their patients, who have been loyal to the practice for the past 25 years.
“People still needed their medicine and the volunteers and other workers who got injured needed adequate care,” Hester said.
Morrow said they appreciated the use of their temporary facility at the rescue squad, but they wanted to have something a little more permanent and familiar in place for their patients.
This past week, the Phil Campbell Medical Clinic had it’s grand re-opening at their new building located at the same site as the old building on Alabama 237.
“We have been the only health care provider in town for the past 25 years, so I felt it was just the right thing to do to re-open here in Phil Campbell,” Morrow said. “We are glad to be here.”
