Okay here is the deal, NCH is not for profit, Physicians Regional is a private for profit hospital, that means that if you go to NCH the bill is way less than Physicians Regional, so they are asking the taxpayers to fund the private for profit choice? Wow, Rick Scott must be an investor with them since he is turning all the public jobs private and giving big money to his friends that run the private companies. But back to the point, lets look at the NCH Urgent Care on the Island, not right now, but yrs ago when that was not there. The people of Marco, including me, donated money for NCH to build a Hospital on Marco, that Hospital became an Urgent Care Center instead, started off as 24/7 and is now an 8am to 8pm facility. So we paid for NCH to be a 24/7 Hospital and what we really have is a 12 hr Urgent Care Center. Now look at what happened there, after the whole incident they no longer treat anything serious and I wouldn't go there for more than a bee sting. Seriously, we all flipped the bill to pay for one 24/7 place that was a farce and now they are asking us to pay for another? Don't we pay enough? We have paid for a lot of street lights in this economy that are not only expensive, but also raise the city's electric bill. We have more street lights than we even need, when I visit veterans park I see a piled of them new and still wrapped in the parking lot there hidden behind the building next to the parking lot, there is wasted money. Has anyone also noticed all the chips out of the lights at intersections like Kendall and Collier where people have clipped them? So they cost us money and they are a safety hazard too. Seriously, lets not ask the residence to pay for stuff we don't need AGAIN. we didn't ask for street lights but we got them, we didn't ask for another urgent care center, but we are getting them, we seems to get a lot of what we are not asking for and we get to pay the bill for all of it...Just my two cents...
