I doubt we can expect any help from Mayo lackeys like Vern Rasmussen, so maybe everyone we should contact Franken, Walz, and Klobuchar.

The Tribune is running a poll on the Hospital closing issue, so far the votes are overwhelmingly against Mayo's decision.

The new Republican Healthcare bill leaves substance abuse and mental issues up-to State Legislatures—the only thing standing in the way of Minnesota losing insurance coverage on these issues is Governor Mark Dayton. if this thing passes and most likely will sooner or later there goes the treatment behavioral heath center...

Looking for Albert Lea Mayo operating margins ran across this rural hospital Top Preforming Hospital list! Austin didn't make the grade, but Albert Lea did, there's an epidemic of under preforming rural hospitals closing but apparently Albert Lea's hospital is doing an OUTSTANDING job. Top 100 rural Hospitals — Albert Lea — Mayo you got some splainin to do!!

QUOTE

There is no better illustration of the value that rural facilities provide to their communities than the annual identification and recognition of the top performing rural facilities. Each year, the rural hospitals are analyzed through the lens of the Hospital Strength INDEX, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance in the US.

Amidst uncertainty, transition and strain, these top performers are excelling in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, and operating at a lower cost than their peers. These groups serve as a benchmark for other rural facilities as they strive to achieve similar results and provide a blueprint for successfully navigating the uncertainty of the new healthcare.

Another questionable aspect is the distance from Austin to Rochester and Albert Lea to Rochester.  Wouldn't you think that the hospital that is closest to Rochester would be closing?  The people of Austin would not have as far to drive as A. Lea people.  I looked at that list of rural hospitals.  That would be another question to ask at the Thursday night meeting.

If Austin was really included on the list then it's actually a list of 101 hospitals?

I sent an email to the company asking them to verify the information in the article and if Austin isn't on the list I'll ask both papers to correct the story.
