Save the NICU at Holston Valley in Kingsport

I am starting this petition in an effort to try and save our Neonatal ICU in Kingsport at Holston Valley Hospital. Ballad Health is removing our level 1 trauma center as well as our NICU. We need to keep our critical care services in Kingsport instead of diverting everything to Johnson City. The amount of travel time for the critically ill and their families along with the costs will be a huge burden that families should not have to worry about. We have a high risk perinatal Physician caring for our high risk mothers as well as a NICU to care for the very sick babies and an ICU to care for the Mothers who get sick. It is imperative that we keep our NICU and Level 1 Trauma center in Kingsport geographically speaking. What is happening is very sad for our community and while some may not be impacted alot of others will definitely feel the burden in finance and travel. Please help us try and save what the community needs.
