St ; Arm hos- pitalv;since:its construction, If years" ago, will leave the local hospital effective Jan. 1, 1967, it was announced this week. They have offered to retain 'their operations here under a paid administrator for a full year, however, 1 or until another religious order can assume the management. The decision was announced last Wednesday at a 'meeting of members of the hospital administration with representatives of the City of Algona -and the staff of doctors from Algona. Heading up the local citizen's group was Mayor William Finn. . The Sisters gave as their reason the lack of available personnel to operate St. Ann hospital. MEANWHILE, hospital authorities have contacted the Sisters of St. Francis of LaCrosse, Wis. in hopes this Order will take over the operation of the local hos : pital. .The St. Francis order now operates St..

This year, in addition to rails Mrs. Bennett said that 25 of these calls will be made through the USO, with the cooperation of the Armed Forces, from troops stationed in the Viet Nam hotbed. Winners in the Local 7106 contest will be selected on Dec. 12, by a drawing at the local membership meeting. Representetives' of the group will visit Algona Thursday of this week to study the local situation and to see if they are interested in taking over the administration and operation of the hospital. The citizen's group was formed several weeks ago with the hope of helping to solve the difficult situation. Local doctors have also pledged their full support and cooperation in working out a solution. First official word that the local hospital was having problems came when the Advance, in an exclusive story Aug. 25, reported there was a strong possibility that the Sisters of Mercy would be leaving soon. Prior to that time, a number of Sisters, including the No. 2 Sister to the Mother Superior at Detroit, had met with lO'Cial doctors to discuss the situation. IF ANOTHER order of Roman Catholic Sisters is not persuaded to take over the operation, then only three alternatives remain. They are to either convert the hospital into a county hospital, a city hospital, or to close it up completely. A bond issue would be needed to transfer the hospital to 9 county hospital. There would also be a possibility that the hospital could be operated as 9 city hospital, as was the case at LeMars where a similar situation developed several months ago. However, there is some question whether enough finances would be available, because osf bonded indebtedness, for the city I to take over the operation.
