Christie Clinic closing doors ahead of protest


CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Add Christie Clinic to the list of organizations looking to close doors ahead of a planned protest in the area today.

The healthcare site made the announcement via their Facebook page. The decision to close the doors early affects the customer service line, as well as the Christie Clinic location on University and Christie Clinic Radiation Oncology.
