WDT: Clinic Prospers After Near Death Experience

     What a few years back was a health clinic teetering now seems on firm footing, and as a downtown business, that's good news for the city's center.
      The North Country Family Health Center is located in the former Kriff's Furniture Store and an award of a federal grant helps cement its success.

All it cost us was having our insurance premiums and deductible skyrocket 500% under the Obamacare wealth redistribution. And also the quality of Samaritan is at an all time low as they get their tentacles into everything, while neglecting thier main purpose.

If you really want to see corruption on a local level, here is a prime example. Another GRANT (tax dollars) to EXPAND (compete) services to low income (the children) residents of the north country. We, the tax payer, have invested how much money in just the last 5 years and now our health insurance premiums and co-pays are thru the roof? Makes no sense to me when we find out how much Mr. Carman is making why we need to keep giving them grants. If they can afford to pay their administration as much money as they do, why do they need grants. When was the last time your local doctor got a grant to be your doctor? And the only comment in the WDT article was from a former administrator, how ironic!

No government agency ever goes down. They cry a lot, as schools do, but they never do anything but grow. Only businesses like paper mills, where the uncouth and unconnected work, ever fail.

Continual flow of tax payer money, that is why they are still in business. If this wasn't subsidized by taxpayer money they would be long gone. Not sure this is a success?

$1,000,000 for an extra 1,700 patients per year? I'll let you do the math...
