Update | June 9

In a tough opinion piece published June 7, the Enterprise Bulletin has come out against the new hospital being built on the Poplar Sideroad, and argues it makes much more sense to build in its current location.

Steve Berman, who wrote the editorial, fears the hospital board will recommend the Poplar Sideroad location. “This is just my opinion,” he says, “and I pray to Hippocrates that I’m wrong, but everything I’ve seen and heard to date, makes me believe that this was the goal all along. The public meetings and presentations to councils so far, seem to have been nothing more than window dressing.”
