Iowa-S. Dakota Physicians Appeal to Presidential Candidates: 'Help Defend America's Safest and Highest Quality Hospitals'
Date:12/6/2007

y and our total joint program has been given a 5 star rating by Healthgrades for the third year in a row. We are responsible to our community. We partner with our local trauma/heart hospital at their ownership level of 40%, take full call to cover trauma and indigent care, donate to local charities, run 100 outreach rural specialty clinics throughout our three state area (Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota), and provide indigent care. We do not "cherry pick" patients. Approximately 35% of our volume is Medicare/Medicaid services. We take care of every patient that is appropriate for our facility. We attract specialty physicians to a traditionally underserved area. Our facility is recognized by young recruits as being a special environment in which to provide care for patients. They know all will have a voice in the management of their practice. This fact is true in spite of a "not for profit" hospital 90 miles north of us offering twice the starting salary for young neurosurgeons that we do. We have created jobs. By attracting our physicians, support staff has grown and their job satisfaction is very high. Compare that fact to most hospitals.

If our hospital is closed, we feel our community will not recover all of the advances we have been able to create for our community in spite of difficult times. The Senate Finance Committee is scheduled to meet on this matter December 5th. Because of the urgency of our cause we are directly contacting all of you. We are asking that you publicly support our right to compete with the large hospital systems and protect the choices we feel our patients should have. Please tell Congress not to destroy America's physician- run hospitals. A list our hospitals is attached for your review.

Respectfully,

Dr. Ralph Reeder Dr. Robert Zimmerman
