CLINIC PLANNED FOR PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Officials at Philadelphia International Airport have approved plans to build a health clinic for travelers.
Millions of Americans fly each year, and countless hours are spent at air terminals across the country, so airports are now installing health clinics to make medical care more convenient for travelers.
Jim Tyrrell is the deputy director of aviation for property management and business development at the Philadelphia airport. He says the clinic will work with the Philadelphia Fire Department to offer first-response services for any medical emergency.
The facility will be called 'Aeroclinic' and will also be able to provide medications and required tests for airline employees.
Construction will begin in a few days, and the clinic will open this summer.
