Letters to the Editor

The last St. Helens hospital feasibility study and following subsequent egregious mismanagement cost local tax payers millions of dollars (some additional millions allegedly “unaccounted for”, Chronicle, March,23), entrapped property owners through assessed property taxes on land over 20 miles away, and was legitimacy rejected at the state level.

Hospitals are very expensive to build, manage, staff, and equip. Just because Hospital is on the door front does not mean the medical facility is fully staffed, has trained specialists, modern equipment, a group of highly trained medical laboratory employees, a trauma center, functional 24 hours a day, etc., etc. This is very unlikely in rural Columbia County?
