TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. (KSDK) – A hotly debated outpatient children's clinic has gotten the go-ahead from the Board of Aldermen.

The board voted 7 to 1 Monday night to approve the new medical office building and outpatient center. The 16-acre property was once used by the Missouri Highway Patrol. Some nearby residents fought the project, arguing that it would cause too much traffic.

BJC Healthcare, meanwhile, says it will serve 1,600 residents in Town and Country.
