Letter: Give Albert Lea back its hospital

Published 10:23 pm Wednesday, November 1, 2017

If Dr. Noseworthy wants  people to speak up, OK, I’m speaking. If you are so proud of Mayo’s accomplishments, why don’t you give a rip about Albert Lea’s hospital? You had a chance to do something great for rural health care, but did you do it? No, instead you are stripping one hospital after another of necessary services so you can get bigger and more important, at least in your own eyes — all that money you plan to get from the state is taxpayer money, and it shouldn’t be given to you if you can’t take care of rural America. We are the taxpayers, and I think this stinks. The best thing you can do now is to give us back our hospital. We need it and you sure don’t.
