Let's Convert Independence Mercy Hospital to Independence Regional Medical Center.

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center: where there is a greeter at the front door and a person at every turn you take, with a friendly smile. Today, we must attempt to unite Independence and Coffeyville healthcare systems to grow into something better. Last May a new Mercy Hospital opened in Joplin, Missouri. This hospital, in comparison, is bigger and better than ours and brings more business. This has cut funding little by little, dwindling our funds to almost nothing. The Mercy parent had decided they do not need or want our Independence Mercy. Let’s not stand by to see our town dwindle down to nothing. I do not want to have to drive a long distance to get help, whether it is urgent or minor. We also don't want to be in a facility where there is little funding, which leads to little medical supplies. We demand excellence. We must take a stand and demand that we want professional and friendly help. We want to feel secure with putting our loved ones in a hospital and not have to drive several miles. To take action we must voice the public’s opinion. We must voice that we do not want an Independence Mercy Hospital, but instead an Independence Regional Medical Center. We want something that wants us and something we will be proud of. By submitting this petition it is the first step to being heard. After we are heard we will make a committee to meet with the Coffeyville and Independence hospital board members to discuss the benefits of converting our hospital to a Regional Medical Center, and the negative sides of not having a hospital at all. This will allow more jobs due to a decent amount of funding and an exceptional selection for staff. This may be a reason for people to move to town to be a part of a more beautiful and successful Independence.
