Save MetroSouth Hospital

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

While the pending closure is difficult news to process, it is heartening to see so many community members willing to come together to fight for our region. MetroSouth Medical Center is a necessary and important part of all of our communities. It is vital for our residents to have access to health care, and it is vital to our economy as well. Put simply, it is too important to loose.

It is also important to note that while we all have a lot of ideas, we are very much at the beginning of this process and we should all keep an open mind as we work towards our mutual goal of saving this facility in whatever way that can be achieved.

In the coming weeks and months, I will be in constant communication with local leaders, the Governor's office, congressional offices, business leaders, the hospital industry and anyone else needed to help us find a solution to this problem. I remain committed to finding a new owner who will operate the type of full-service medical facility that will protect our access to quality health care and provide the jobs our communities need. As this process unfolds, my office will provide as many updates as possible. 

While the current situation is difficult and frustrating, I truly believe we will find new opportunity through this crisis. I have faith in the people of this region and in our ability to meet the challenges ahead, and I remain proud as ever to work alongside you as we move forward.
