Meeting held recently to discuss matter There is a possibility that St. Ann hospital in Algona may be closed, transferred or sold sometime in the near future,; it was revealed after a recent meeting of the staff of doctors of the hospital and representatives of the Sisters of Mercy from Detroit, Mich. The Sisters, including the No. 2 Sister to the Mother Superior at Detroit, met with local doctors several weeks ago on an "information gathering" meeting. Tne representatives her* said that the community will be given plenty of notice if it is decided that the Sisters of Mercy can no longer operate the hospital profitably. They told the local doctors they have no intention of doing anything immediately but that f it is decided that the local hos- >ital cannot be operated any onger by this Order, it will be cither transferred to another Order if one will take over the operation or else be closed. IN THIS event, either the city or the county, and probably the Latter, would have to take over the operation. One local doctor said Wednesday that the community, of course, would have to have a hospital and it would be up to either the county or city to take over ownership and management if the Sisters of Mercy decided to leave. The Sisters from Detroit told local doctors that this is not a problem in Algona alone but also in other Iowa hospitals they operate. Population is diminishing in both Iowa and Kossuth county with little hope for improvement in the future. Citizens urge school bond issue soon The Citizens advisory commit tee took a tour of the presen facilities at the high school and Annex Monday night, Aug. 22 Earlier in the month the grou] first of the met at various times with th THIS FACT plus decreased revenue from medicare patients, and more and more of the hospital patients in Iowa are 65 and over, also has cut down on revenue. Local doctors were told that at the present time, the Sisters are able to pay the operating aosts but are unable to pay off ny principal or interest on the ocal building, which was con- tructed and opened here in 1950. Present at the meeting were \lgona doctors Bourne, Rooney, iray, Schutter and Koob. Dr. Kenefick was out-of-town at the ime of the meeting. Hospitals at Britt and Emmetsburg, west and east of Al- ;ona, are both county hospitals. Sister Gualberta, who is in charge of the local hospital, would not comment on the meeting when contacted Wednesday. She said any information would have to come from the Mother Superior in Detroit.
