I was very happy to read the recent Triplicate article which reported Dr. Greg Duncan’s successful effort to bring a cardiologist to Crescent City. Thanks to Duncan, the Del Norte Healthcare District, and St. Joseph Health, we will have a new doctor in town, with others to follow.

I know Asante has also expressed an interest in expanding into our community. After having no choice but Sutter for so many years, we are finally getting some options.

Hospital CEO Mitch Hanna publicly stated that Duncan’s efforts on behalf of our healthcare was a witch hunt against Sutter. Hanna is wrong. Our entire community stood up together and stopped Sutter’s plans to cut beds and raise prices at Sutter Coast Hospital. David beat Goliath.

Let’s welcome the St. Joseph staff to Crescent City.
