1. Since it is not an emergency clinic, what is really the point? If you have an emergency, you would either drive/be driven to an emergency room off the island or else you would call 911/ambulance.
2. Since this is not an emergency facility, it is just a Drs. office that is open 24 hours. Since it is really just a business and not a true public service filling a void, why on Earth would the public pay for it? If it can't survive on its own business plan, then it does not need to be created.
I can see having the public pay for a second ambulance stationed on the island or an emergency facility, but simply a primary care Dr. who is available 24hrs does nothing for anyone - except the Dr. getting paid to sit there all night reading a book.
Don't waste our money so that some realtor can tell some prospective buyer that Marco has 24 hr medical care - which if you have an emergency, it does not.
