To the Editor:
The city of Stevens Point is in danger of losing the most professional facility we have for providing skilled nursing services and long-term care for the elderly and disabled. The Portage County Health Care Center has been providing skilled nursing services for over 100 years.
Some of the members on the Portage County Board of Supervisors and the County Executive are recommending either privatizing and/or closing the Portage County Health Care Center.
We need to make sure that a referendum will appear on the ballot in November of 2018. The voters should have a say in this matter before a decision is made.
Any one of us are just one serious illness or one serious accident away from needing skilled nursing care.
Please get involved in this situation before it is too late!
