I am writing about our local newspaper in which "selective publication" is the norm, instead of allowing individual viewpoints from both sides of an issue. I read a "letter" recently about Grace Hospital that really appears to be designed to 'make Grace Hospital look good" and knowing most of you out there, who have had "horrible" experiences in dealing with Grace Hospital, it is beyond comprehension that the News Herald "acts" as if advertising revenue and staying 'on good terms' with Grace is more important than allowing readers to express their views. If those of you who still read the News Herald will look at the infrequent amount of letters that get printed and the "theme" of the letters that make it through the 'FILTER' to be published, I know you would agree that readers are DENIED a FAIR and EQUAL ability to express views of a negative position as much as those who write about positive experiences. If Grace Hospital had a better reputation, I think people would be mad that anyone is out here trying to call attention to poor customer service, and bad operating practices. My hope is NEW legislation and laws regulating debt collection WILL FORCE Grace Hospital to make much needed changes in how it treats and provides care to the public here in the Burke County area. Nothing will change until good people stand up and say,'enough is enough'

Grace Hospital (Blue Ridge Health Care/Carolina Medical) is purchasing all the doctor's practices and forcing patients to become part of their system. Higher bills and terrible service. They purchased Blue Ridge Radiology so you have to go to GH for a simply X Ray.
