MIDVALE -- A new medical clinic opened Tuesday in Midvale to provide care for low-income families.

The New Hope Clinic, located at 65 E. 6850 South, is a counterpart of the Maliheh Clinic in Murray and is staffed by 120 volunteers.

"The Hope Clinic today will be opened as an island. It's an island built on the recognition of human need, of men and women and children who have compelling medical conditions that cry for attention and yet do not have the means or the insurance or the pathway to receive the care they need," said Ken Verdonia, member of the board of directors for the New Hope Clinic.

Elder Russel M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints' Quorum of the Twelve Apostles dedicated the clinic.
