Mr Healey, along with RMBC councillors, launched a petition urging the surgery to remain open at the site, which was signed by 340 residents.
Mr Healey said: “This is great news for patients in Wickersley and the surrounding area who came forward and were willing to speak out in support of our campaign.
“It’s good to see that GPs genuinely listened to residents’ concerns put forward in the consultation.
“It clearly caused deep concerns for many people who were worried about getting to see their local doctor at a time when there are already difficulties accessing GP services.
“I’d like to thank all of those that strengthened our case by signing our petition and helping to keep the local Wickersley surgery open.”
A spokesperson for NHS Rotherham CCG, said: “We are aware that Clifton Medical Centre has completed their patient engagement work in relation to their branch practice within Wickersley Health Centre.
“We are advised that the outcome is that they will not seek to close their branch within Wickersley Health Centre”.
