Letter to the Editor 2-22-13

Dear Editor,
As a past hospital board member, I want you to know that a great deal of time and thought has been put into the need for a new hospital facility. The current building can no longer efficiently meet our healthcare needs. Our ability to recruit and retain physicians depends upon a positive outcome of this vote. The future of healthcare in Cloud County will be decided on February 26th. Please vote YES!
Susan Retter
