Dear Editor:

Considerable concern has understandably arisen in the Wauneta community and the surrounding area following the recent announcement by Vetter Health Service Inc. that they intend to close their nursing home in Wauneta. The facility is a critical element of the health care system, and a very significant source of employment opportunities and commerce in this neighborhood.

Recognizing the profound importance of retaining a viable form of the facility in Wauneta, several members of the community leadership are working together to identify the options available, and to marshal available resources to provide an alternative to closure of the facility.

We want to assure not only employees, residents of the facility, and their families, but all concerned citizens that we will be working diligently in an effort to retain this valuable asset.
