Encouragement for our local hospital
Your recent “op ed” referring to the WGH fiscal turnaround and the information regarding other regional rural hospitals hopefully will encourage ongoing support for our local Warren General Hospital. That support for our local hospital services and physicians must be utilized or we could join the demise of the Dunkirk/Fredonia operation and lose physicians.
It is always difficult to hear of layoffs and budget cutting measures by our hospital but those prudent decisions have assured the survival of WGH at this time. I am aware that some complex procedures and diagnoses require outside referrals but remember to consider available local services and appreciate the convenience and competence of local physicians.
Warren is a beautiful community with much to offer and I encourage us all to support local restaurants, recreational activities, businesses and all those involved in making this a special place to live.
