We Need A New Hospital

Dear Editor,

With all the trouble at PHC lately and with the demise of both Stella Maris and its replacement, the PPA, I think it’s time for some forward thinking here. We need a new hospital right here in Rockaway Park.

And what better location than the old Stella Maris high school building?

Far Rockaway already has St. John’s and the yabba dabba clinic. What about us in the Western end? What do we have? Two vet clinics for dogs and cats. Now that’s a lot of good that’s going to do us.

The old high school building is big, has a large parking lot. It’s accessible from both sides. And it has room to grow, if necessary.

It says in The Bible, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” And a lot of people have perished at PHC – some from simple procedures.
