Bartlet Hospital Proposed Closure

Good men


These are the thoughts of Dr Bartlet benefactor of the hospital named after him.

He was often heard to speak of the sad lot of those in patients, especially women, who had to return to their cottages after a severe operation and face toils and troubles of the home and family when they were not sufficiently strong to bare them. He never changed his opinion on this point ; the more he saw of the expanding work of the hospital  the greater became his determination to provide convalescent treatment.

Now in the enlightened 21st Century they want to sell it off  to pay a debt? Come off it.
