I believe that closing this hospital would be a serious mistake. In time this hospital has the ability to be a great hospital. The county commissioners promised to back the hospital but it appears that the help is not available. Why has after 30 yrs. a financial problem developed? There have been hard times before and the hospital has survived. Give the answer to the question and you will find the upper management can fix it. If the management can not fix it ... then they are the problem. We are in a definite economic crunch but don't let health care get thrown out by the uneducated critics. Remember the nursing staff as well as all the staff work under pressure to do the best that they can do each day they work.
