I’d like to talk about healthcare.

There’s a bit of an epidemic of rural hospitals closing down due to bankruptcy. When these hospitals close, patients in small towns are forced to drive to big cities to continue their treatment. On top of that, the hospital workforce loses a really well-paying job in a region that may not offer comparable economic opportunities.

I am a big believer in healthcare facilities being a cornerstone of thriving small towns. What’s your take on healthcare’s placement in the economic resilience of small towns?
