Martha D Young 5 days, 4 hours ago on New Steamboat Springs freestanding ER could open by late summer

On Saturday evening my adult granddaughter fell playing soccer, breaking her fibula and tearing tendons in her ankle. She was taken to a local E.R. and sent home. On Monday she contacted a local orthopedic surgeon and got an appointment for Wednesday. She was told that surgery had to be done within 5 days of the injury. This took place in Boise, ID. At YVMC, there's always an orthopedic surgeon on call for the E.R. Fractures and other orthopedic injuries are attended to immediately. We are very fortunate in our small city to have the services of YVMC Emergency.Room staff.

My concern is access to healthcare for everyone. The proposed "emergency center", according to Bailes, does not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare reimbursement due to govt. regulations. So, will this facility offer a sliding scale or another payment method that makes it accessible to everyone?

If the defendant is found guilty of the heinous crimes against women and under-aged girls for which he's charged any legal punishment of him would be inadequate. The public deserves to know what Barkey's "deal" is. Nothing short of a life sentence without possibility of parole is remotely acceptable.
