State Auditor Adam Edelen's office announced it will be conducting a review of a new Lexington primary care clinic, per request of Mayor Jim Gray.

HealthFirst, a nonprofit clinic primarily supported by tax dollars, announced last month that it might abandon opening it's new clinic because it lacked the funding to operate the facility.

According to a release from Auditor Edelen's office, this was after the clinic had already spend $250,000 in federal funds to develop the clinic on Southland Drive.

In the release, Auditor Edelen states "my office will conduct a limited review of the Southland Drive project to try to determine what went wrong in an effort to expand health services to low-income Lexingtonians. Questions about how a quarter of a million dollars were spent need to be answered."

The whole system of Medical Care needs to be examined to make sure they are not holding back on cures. If you are cured you don't come back month in and month out for more medicine or visits. Now who in their 'right mind' thinks the farmesuiticals wants something cured. That don't set the Stock Market at 'Highs'.
