A meeting tonight will address concerns of some Lindsborg residents; they want to know why they have a medical crisis of sorts on their hands.
Two doctors are set to leave the local hospital within in the next couple of months. That means the town of 3,500 people is left with only one doctor.
Resident Susan Higbee says she has been taking her family to Dr. Bryce Loder for over three decades.
"I can't put a measurement on the value of that kind of partnership in health care”, says Higbee,
She does not know what she will do when her family doctor leaves.
Eyewitness News tried making contact with the CEO of the Lindsborg Community hospital and both doctors involved in the situation. No calls were returned from any of the parties.
As concern continues to spread, those who live in Lindsborg have more questions. Residents hope to get some answers at Thursday’s town meeting. Community members still have hope they may be able to keep both doctors in town.
Starting in October Salina Regional Health center will take over management and operations of the Lindsborg hospital. Current employees will keep their jobs; the two hospitals have discussed the change for a year.
