As You See It

To the Editor,

We again just recently had a tragic incident resulting from not having any emergency medical facilities in Plymouth. There are two urgent care facilities, which close at 6:00pm, but they are not suitable for emergency incidents such as a stroke, heart attack or serious accident.

Plymouth once had an excellent hospital built and paid for by the citizens of Plymouth. It belonged to the citizens of the Plymouth area.

Through the efforts of its last administrator and a complacent board, it was allowed to be acquired by the Aurora Medical Group and not long after was closed.

That facility is now only used for out-patient surgery. The 1981 extended care wing was later sold to a third party.

Aurora is now considering a new facility in Sheboygan on the north side of Sheboygan. That facility however, as I understand it, is for minor surgery and does not help the problem of emergency for western Sheboygan County.

Aurora’s current facility, Memorial Hospital, on the north side of Sheboygan, is not readily accessible from the west or south.I understand that Aurora had considered locating a new facility at the intersection of Hwys 32 and 23 on the north side of Sheboygan Falls. That would be an excellent location for the entire area, as it is readily and speedily accessible. That would address the issue of Plymouth losing their excellent hospital and would provide it again with an easily reached emergency facility.

Sincerely yours

Charles E. Rohde
