You Said It: About Father Bob, animal shelter overcrowding and St. Vincent trimming staff

About Father Bob, animal shelter and St. Vincent trimming staff

(Continued)

St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hosptial cuts 23 from its staff. (June 29)

◆ The real story — health care systems, including St. Vincent, are building fancy, one-stop health systems in order to attract all of the Obamacare bucks to their area. They moved on ( because, in the end — it is the law ) and planned for change, taking the money from traditional clinics and hospitals. It will work and it is inevitable. Take a look at Exit 210 at Hamilton Commons. I can visit the doc and have most all testing done in under one hour. Then hop over for lunch, a drink, a movie, shopping, banking, etc.

THB: Interesting theory,but in a press release from the hospital system, the Catholic-based network blamed changes brought on by the Affordable Care Act and cuts to Medicare reimbursement for the staff cuts.

Rick Bramwell extols the virtues of picking wild raspberries in his outdoors column. (July 4)

◆ Black raspberries in season ... one of life’s simple pleasures. Even better when there is a breeze to keep the mosquitoes from being too much of a nuisance. But still worth the effort.

THB: Let’s add lemonade, porch swings and popsicles to this list of simple summer pleasures. Enjoy.
