The Tri-Cities needs Kadlec and KGH, as well as Lourdes and the surgery center.
I am a woman, wife, mother and grandmother. My family has been served well by all of the above in the last couple of years. I want to have the option of seeking medical care for myself and my family at facilities that office superior service at a competitive price. Competition is necessary to ensure this.
I am also a certified public accountant that is blessed with privilege of working for professionals that work at all of the above locations. My clients like working for their individual hospitals. It appears that each entity offers something different that they feel that allows them to provide the best possible service to their patients.
A lack of competition will cause our hospital standard of care to decrease and the prices to increase.
