New Merced clinic combines medicine and prayer

In the middle of a shortage of health care providers, a new clinic hopes to address not only the medical needs of residents, but also their spiritual needs. St. Thomas Emergent Services, a Christian faith-based clinic, opened its doors to the public on Monday. The center is the sixth addition to a string of clinics sponsored by Horisons Unlimited, a nonprofit health care organization known to combine medicine with the “power of prayer.”
