TMH mulling hospitalist proposal

Sukhbir Pannu sat Thursday night before The Memorial Hospital Board and recounted his experiences of raising a family in a rural setting. In particular, he discussed the quality of medical care in areas off the beaten path. “The system doesn’t think we deserve the same kind of care,” he said of small towns. “The best physicians, the best providers are at large hospitals in urban settings.”
