Medical center suddenly closes in Melrose

The sudden closing of a medical center in Melrose has dozens of patients scrambling to find another location for health care.

Doctors Medical Group at 384 E.14th St. in Melrose has shut its doors for financial reasons. About a dozen employees have lost their jobs and some doctors and staff will have to relocate to other sites in the city. Center officials say they decided to close one office in the Bronx and one in Brooklyn to save money.

The medical center has two other locations in the Bronx that will remain open.
