Would have liked local hospital support
I would like to thank everyone for their support during Perry’s recent illness and month-long hospital stay, especially Dr. Hodson.
However, I am sad that we didn’t receive support where we needed it most—from our area hospitals. Both Hillsboro and Marion hospitals refused to admit him to swing bed because he is “too much work,” and they don’t have the staff or room to care for him.
Maybe a “merged hospital” would not have those things either. Regardless, our future business will be taken out of the county where it is appreciated.
