Walk-in Clinic Aimed at Helping Less Fortunate Opens on Broadway
UPTOWN — As a child, Theresa Siaw spent many days traveling from the South Side to visit family in Uptown.
Siaw, who now handles business development for newly opened Uptown clinic Omni Healthcare, said the community has gone through some changes since those days.
In particular, she pointed out the changing attitudes toward less-fortunate people in the area — the patients Omni expects to serve at its walk-in medical clinic at 4609 N. Sheridan Rd.: "A lot of people have problems with people sleeping on benches, people living under the bridge," Siaw said.
She said Uptowners used to be more empathetic: "We're human beings, we should be helping each other out."
