You are likely aware of Mayo Clinic's decision to restructure and reduce hospital services in Albert Lea, MN, including the elimination of ICU and inpatient services. At the end of the day, the loss of these services will have a negative impact on Minnesotans who will face longer travel times and distances to access the healthcare they need.

Also troubling is that Mayo Clinic seems not to have genuinely engaged with and listened to the community in an effort to truly understand the impact of this decision.

If Mayo Clinic is unwilling to hold further conversations with YOU about this decision, now it the time for you to express your concerns by attending The Rally for Rural Healthcare. Join Save Our Hospital on Saturday, September 30th at 1:00pm in Albert Lea to unite with and support Albert Lea and other rural communities facing reductions in healthcare services.

What: The Rally for Rural Health Care
When: Saturday, September 30th at 1:00 p.m.
Where: Central Park in Albert Lea, MN
Why: To support rural communities facing reductions in healthcare services


The challenges that older adults and all Minnesotans in rural counties face when it comes to accessing vital healthcare services are immense. It may be Albert Lea today, but which Greater Minnesota community is next? Show your support by attending the rally Saturday!

Sincerely,
AARP Minnesota

Reading Al Franken's response to the hospital closing made me ill especially after seeing Al compare himself to Paul Wellstone a couple weeks ago. What a joke Al turned out to be.

A big political football. Best to just ride the fence for now. And he is getting up there in age. What if he needs medical treatment?

I have nothing but respect and admiration for the vast majority of people involved in any type of people care.

The issues involved are bigger than the local situation.

It is a societal thing. I think.

Being steered in the wrong direction.

On the national level. . .

The press just helps keep the people divided. No help there.

Instead of: "Trump to Smash Obammer Care" or whatever.

It doesn't occur to anyone to just demand that things be refined and improved. For everyone.

It is bizarre to me.

Locally it is sad to watch the game be played out on TV. Where Mayo owns all that. How many ex local TV people work for Mayo?

So you want to keep that option open if you're in the local TV news game now.

Seems the focus for them is to just win the battle.

Somebody was just saying to me that part of the hospital is mayo and part of it is naeve.  Is that true? and if so, what parts?

Nothing is Naeve anymore as far as business or licensing purposes go.  My guess is someone is thinking about the Naeve Healthcare Foundation which still exists along with the Auxiliary that runs the gift shop and coffee shop and manages donations.  The original building is still occasionally referred to as Naeve hospital but in name only.

Everybody keeps saying business this, and business that.

To me it seems like you have people in Mayo who wanted to buy little independent cookie makers and turn it all into a mass scale Famous Amous type situation.

Lots of crap cookies. But lots and lots of 'em.

From a business standpoint. . .

How is Albert lea not a great place for healing?

Lots of waterfront walking paths. The actual hospital is right on the water.

Very nice relaxing serenity with walking distance.

Is the answer to healing and medical having as many sick people as possible jammed into Rochester?

Would be great if Albert Lea could get something new going.

Maybe even bring back a nursing school.
