Position Papers
Physician and Nurse Shortage
There is a serious shartage of both Physicians and Nurses in our community. The district in the past several years has started to play a role in encouraging and helping both doctors and nurses to come to this community. We provide financial incentives to accomplish this. We can and should do more, as the shortage is serious and getting worse.
A new hospital and new monies call for new policies
Recently we started to collect rent under the land lease that the voters of the district aprroved this past August. The building of a new hospital creates needs for funds to guarantee that the district can always have control of the direction the hospital takes even in the face of a worse case senario. The district is empowered to fund health care agencies and does so on an annual basis. Increasing needs for this funding requires a carefully deliniated District policy.
