“PRIMARY CARE CLINIC — LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE”

Dear Editor,
 
Notwithstanding the official proclamation that our people henceforth will be guided or directed by the "best of the best", one still wonders where some of these rather peculiar ideas originated from — the proposal to dismantle the Primary Care unit at LBJ Hospital, to say the least — is shortsighted.
 
The existence and availability of this critically important unit at LBJ with its present set-up, particularly for those of us 60 and older — has literally been a life saver.
 
Light-hearted perhaps, but there is a serious and relevant caution for those at the hospital who must make the important decisions: “any jackass can kick down a barn, but is takes a skilled carpenter to build one".
 
We do not need to re-build another Primary Care Unit in the near future; we already have one — it works.
 
Gi Malala
