To the editor: Would the Mayo Clinic model be successful in Chestertown?

Being able to copy what approaches were successful at the Mayo Clinic, as well as those that failed, would allow us to have a successful working model in a much shorter period of time, helping us avoid costly mistakes.

Another option would be do nothing, and one beautiful fall day, the hospital that has cared for us for so many years is gone, closed because too many doctors have left for greener pastures and the hospital is losing too much money.

Adding to the insult, the injury: The Chinese company that bought our hospital has sold the real estate to Walmart.
