Proposed hospital site 'foolish'

 

 

 

Dear editor,

Re: One hospital is right decision (Record, Dec. 30).

Wrong! Those who wish to put one hospital in the middle of nowhere have to ask themselves why?

Is it to support land development for logging companies, who seem to have spun logging leases into ownership? For the public to pay for the sewage and power to be brought to a remote location to benefit the surrounding development? Or is it so people can drive for 45 minutes to get to the hospital, giving them 15 minutes worth of the golden hour at the hospital?

Putting a hospital out on the Inland Island Highway is about the most foolish thing thought of.
