There are 1 comment on the NBC 17 story from Apr 28, 2008, titled State Nixes Rex-Franklin Plan For New Hospital. In it, NBC 17 reports that:

“Taking the sole health care facility out of central Franklin County would likely result in physicians who presently serve the community to relocate their practices elsewhere and it would discourage other physicians from coming to this community”

Some state lawmakers are backing the state medical board's decision to block plans to relocate a hospital in Franklin County. via NBC 17

I can not understand why no one is interested in the growth in Franklin County and the people there that deserve a hospital in the area that is modern and easily accessable. A month or so ago, there was a "town meeting" to discuss bringing this hospital into our area, who decided to hold his meeting in the afternoon while most people are at work? My husband was in and out of the hospital 4 times last year, just got back after an 11 day stay last week and with gas prices and the emotion of a loved one being sick but you must travel over an hour (and pay to park at Wake) is to much. My husband will have to get his heart shocked in two weeks, I'll be driving back and forth again while my county does nothing to improve health services to it's community.
