Albany health care needs competition

Letter to the Editor

Thank you, Dr. Thompson, for revealing the startling statistics about Phoebe Health System’s quality of care. The sooner our community understands all of the implications of their planned takeover of Palmyra, the greater the possibility that we can save ourselves from their greedy grab and find someone who will assure competition in health care delivery in our community.

There have been at least two entities that have shown interest already. Let’s encourage them to become a part of our community!

Faced with real competition, perhaps Phoebe will become a responsible player here. Otherwise, we can kiss our chances for affordable, quality health care good-bye.
