Morgan County free clinic to close

Local News

A clinic serving Morgan County has closed its doors. Dr. Tom Kim runs the Free Medical Clinic of America. There’s also a location on Chapman Highway in Knox County.

It’s billed as a free clinic for the working poor and has been around for more than six years. Kim says he decided to close the Morgan County clinic because of his age and the long drive.

“When your limitation, when your capability to do something, you know, you better step down,” he said.

Kim says he hopes to concentrate on his work in South Knoxville for a few more years.
