You may be laboring under the delusion that we live in a DEMOCRACY! This sort of decision-making is what happens when health care is for profit, and not for meeting our health needs!

I am saddend by this closure because The Marysville facility saved my daughter's life, and helped our family start on a new journey to healthier choices. The staff members were professional, caring, and supportive, the therapy treatment plan was excellent, and the facility was very warm and home-like. The Marysville facility and staff kept my daughter safe, and cared for her and I thank God for them. I am sad that this necesssary and excellent resource will close end of Aug 2009.

The staff nor the psychiatrists where invited to any of these meetings. It was almost understood that we were NOT to be there.
The management of that hospital makes it a scary place to work. As long as the needs of the community results in them turning a profit, then and only then will they support a specific health issue.
