Recently, an op-ed column written by Col. Ed Johnson appeared in the Opinion section of the Star-Banner.
Johnson wrote of the sincere functions and benefits Munroe Regional Medical Center has given, for many years, to the populace of this entire region.
Johnson listed the contributions of Munroe and the fact that Munroe operates at less of an impact to taxpayers than many privately owned heath care facilities.
I had heard discussions from the advocates of the need to privatize Munroe.
Apparently I was aware of only their one-sided opinion and statistics. Thank you, Col. Johnson, for your concise article explaining the positive side of Munroe Regional, which services everyone, including children and the elderly, many who are unable to pay for cures others take for granted.
