Hospitals face uncertain times

By Don N. Ridgway, M.D.


Dear Editor:

Regardless of whether the reader is a consumer of the DCMH complex of health care or not, I would suggest that you take the time to find out who your representative to the DCMH is and request that they do the job to which they were elected. They seem to be in uninformed blissful ignorance currently. Dozens of hospitals in rural communities such as Delta have been forced to close because they cannot survive under the onerous demands of governmental interference and regulations. It would be a tragedy for that to happen here.
