Backlog of 9/11-illness cases sparks opening of new lower Manhattan clinic

Due to an enormous number of new patients with illnesses caused by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, a new World Trade Center Health Program clinic will open in Lower Manhattan scheduled to see up to 750 patients monthly, reports Thomas Tracy for the New York Daily News.

The clinic should open on William Street in August 2018.

Currently the waiting list is long — nearly 3,000 people enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Program have yet to have their first appointment. Those who have been waiting the longest will be seen first.
