After opening statements by Hospital employees Kelli Glick and Mike Koch, Miller started asking questions submitted from the audience to Sturgis Hospital CEO Rob LaBarge. He and members of the Hospital Board were invited to attend.
One of the questions asked was how can LaBarge and the Board justify the closing of the departments and services that were announced last week. LaBarge explains. LINKC.
