Local political blogger, Vivian Paige points out that
Fire Chief Loy Senter brought up the fact that a smaller DePaul hospital with fewer services will result in the routing of emergency patients to a hospital that is further away from them – either Leigh or Norfolk General. That will mean longer wait times for service. Ultimately, Norfolk citizens will have two choices: wait longer or pony up more money for more rescue positions. We all know how that will turn out.
Vivian’s message is the same as ours: Let your voice be heard. Contact these people and let them know how you feel.
