Regarding the Jan. 19 Perspectives piece "Give Us More Time, UPMC: Let Us Find Someone Else to Run a Hospital in Braddock": Hip hip, hooray, to Braddock Borough Council's Jesse Brown and Braddock Mayor John Fetterman!
Their plea in Tuesday's PG begged UPMC for more time to solve the enormous problem that Braddock faces. They hit the nail on the head.
I agree that if UPMC wants to close the hospital, at least then give Braddock time to help find someone else to take over this integral piece of Braddock and 14 other surrounding communities, all of which have passed resolutions opposing the closing.
Let's all support Braddock council's efforts to enforce a new strategy to keep the hospital alive. As a business owner in Braddock for the last 42 years, I know how critical the hospital is to this community -- an emergency room, hundreds of jobs and one of the best examples of Braddock's humanity.
UPMC -- give Braddock more time. The result could be incredible.
