Letter to the Editor

I have read with interest the two articles in the Sturgis Journal regarding Sturgis Hospital. The Tuesday May 24 article, while not overly optimistic, did not give a hint that bankruptcy would be on the table less than a month later. While the June article does have a plan going forward, it depends on a loan from the city and a large grant to carry the facility to the end of the year when it would become an emergency facility and be eligible for outside funds. If the loan from the city is not approved then the Hospital would file for bankruptcy.
