Cuts means daughter won’t get health care

TeninoMarch 15, 2013 

I’m glad the Olympian is covering the health care cuts at Providence St. Peter Hospital (“Union Delivers Strike Notice,” 2/28). We cannot understate how serious these cuts are for our families and our community. My 9-year-old daughter had heart palpitations last year and we had to take her to Children’s to find the cause.

With Providence’s new plans, if she has further heart issues I will not be able to afford her care. With the new plans, I have less money to spend in our community and I’m going to skip going to the doctor unless I absolutely must.

I hope your readers will see through Providence’s corporate double-speak and support us in fighting these devastating cuts.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
