A Matter Of Opinion

TUESDAY, JUNE 17, 2008, 1:31 P.M.

Do you care?

The state Department of Health will hold two hearings next week in Spokane County to hear community feelings about the prospective sale of Deaconess Medical Center and Valley Hospital and Medical Center. The department is to make a decision this fall as whether to approve the sale to Tennessee-based Community Health Systems Inc., a for-profit operator of more that 100 hospitals in 28 states.
Those who offer testimony will be limited to three minutes (although they are encouraged to present the department with extended written remarks). What would you tell them?
