Grant for New Psychiatric Clinic.—
Announcement was made recently of a federal fund grant of $196,187 for a new psychiatric clinic at the University of Alabama Medical Center. Located at University Hospital, it is the first unit of a proposed new ambulant patient center. Designed to handle an estimated 25,000 patients a year as well as for expanded research and teaching purposes, the clinic is a self-financing operation, since no community funds are available for the hospital's vast indigent out-patient service. The present psychiatric clinic is located in offices on the second floor of a store at the Medical Center. The new clinic will be constructed in the block chosen for the proposed out-patient center, bounded by Sixth and Seventh Avenues and 17th and 18th Streets, south, Birmingham.
