After nearly closing down last fall, the former North Country Children's Clinic in Watertown has a new lease on life.

The North Country Family Health Center and Samaritan Medical Center announced Wednesday that their partnership that began late last year to keep the clinic open has officially ended, stating the clinic can now financially operate on it's own.

Financial issues led to the near closure of clinic back in October, before Samaritan, with the blessing of the State Health Department, stepped in to assume operations.

The board of directors for the clinic has now taken full control of operations. For more information on the North Country Family Health Center go to their website here.
