Sad & shocking news arrived yesterday:
Yelm’s Mt. Rainier Clinic (MRC) announces their closure.
Dr. Elmer Cranton opened here in Yelm in 1990 with his son John Cranton, NN, ARNP running the clinic the last 6 years. “The current economic and regulatory environment” were cited as major factors in the decision to close here.
Dr. Cranton’s world-famous chelation therapy treatments brought people to Yelm from all over the United States & several foreign countries. Not only does this town lose another business, the city loses the employee payroll tax, B & O tax, & sales tax revenue, to name just a few.
Additionally, many patients came to MRC from out of town and patronized our local businesses like the super-markets, hotel, pharmacies & gas stations. Their revenue will now be lost in our local stores.
I have been a patient at MRC since 1990, indeed one of their first as I have patient number 80.

THE YELM COMMUNITY BLOG THANKS THE CRANTONS FOR THEIR SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY & WISHES THEM WELL IN THEIR ENDEAVORS.
