CPH can handle Peninsula's surgical needs

Citizens of the Kenai Peninsula Borough recently made it clear that they did not want our Central Peninsula Hospital to be sold or join in a joint venture. I thought a partnership might be advantageous, but since the borough still owns our hospital, it must protect its assets.

If $20 million (or even much less) per year is diverted from the hospital's revenues, it will have a major negative impact on our citizens' tax bills and on the City of Soldotna and Kenai Peninsula Borough having funding to provide services. 

Central Peninsula Hospital is a first class facility. With the added fourth OR, there should be no problem handling the surgical needs of the Peninsula. I will agree that their services are pricey, but it's not going to get better if there is a competing surgical center in Kenai.

I have no affiliation with the hospital or any parties involved.
