Eastern Kansas Health Care System is proposing to close the Leavenworth Kansas campus in-patient Psychiatric program and move it to Topeka Kansas campus. This will cost jobs for the health care providers due to the following:
. Distance to travel for most is greater tha 80
miles a day.
. Health care is a specialized area today and the
health care providers will be forced to either
quit the VA health care system or work outside
of their chosen specialized field.
. And most importantly the veterans in North east
Kansas, North Western Missouri, Nebraska and
Iowa will be significantly impacted financially
by the additional distance (80+ miles) to
travel for health care. This will also limit
families to be part of the veterans care and
foundational support on a daily basis.
Please respond to this petition asap, we will need to act with this petition by November,30, 2002. The veterans supported us in our times of need and now it\'s their time of need. Let\'s show our support for them and vote NO.
