To the editor:

I heard at one time St. Mary’s Medical Center in Blue Springs was for sale. Why in the world would this hospital be for sale?

I can only wonder what the people in Blue Springs and the surrounding towns in Eastern Jackson County and on east think about this. My personal preference is that St. Mary’s stay an active hospital in Blue Springs. I do not want to go to 39th Street in Independence or Lee’s Summit to have my yearly tests. Do you?

We all need to support this hospital, along with the dedicated nurses, doctors and all the other staff. Oh, and let’s not forget the volunteers who give of their time, and they do so with a smile.
