Princeton seniors need 24/7 emergency care

Money shouldn't stop the emergency department from staying open 24/7.

A letter of hope. We the people of Princeton moved here because of the beauty and peace.

Not to come here and die, which will eventually happen to some of us, if we need care after midnight. We are a community of elderly and people with disabilities whom are sometimes sicker than most.

I would not want my handsome grandson now, if this had been happening when he was so ill. Many a night the ambulance came and picked him up after midnight.

We are all aging and we need the emergency to stay open, so they are able to save lives. Please don’t let anymore lives be lost because of costs.

Our children and all of us need our hospital! We can’t only hope and dream, this has to happen!
