Brooks-TLC outsiders taint hospital image
I write in agreement with Richard Makuch’s points regarding Brooks-TLC Memorial Hospital’s possible relocation. As he noted, it appears that forces decreeing the hospital’s future are people who do not reside in our area and (my words) have “no skin in the game.”
As the writer presently suggests (and has in at least one past letter to the OBSERVER, I recall) what would be the problem strongly considering the Route 60-Williams Street location? It is close to exit 59 of the New York State Thruway and offers a very clear route of travel for emergency vehicles.
As he also suggests, is it a reliable determination that the present Brooks-TLC location cannot be adapted to modern medical times? If such is the case we are, in this writer’s opinion, back to considering a sensible location for what will be an extremely important facility to our area’s medical well-being.
