What happened to Springfield Healthcare Abortion Center?

There used to be a clinic that operated under several different names: Ladies Center, Women's Healthcare Center of Springfield, Springfield Healthcare Center.  One source estimated that clinic performed about 1,500 terminations each year.  That clinic shut down in 2005.  At that time their board voted unanimously to shut down the clinic citing business reasons. Also in 2005 state lawmakers approved a bill that requires abortion practitioners to have privileges at a hospital within 30 miles in cases of botched abortions that would have jeopardized the lives of women who are injured by an abortion and need emergency medical attention that the abortion facility can't provide. The measure was approved 115-35 by the House and the Senate passed it 26-6.  The abortion doctor at the Springfield Health Care Center lacked privileges at a hospital within that distance.
