Letter to the editor: Rural healthcare

The article, “Healthcare in the outlands,” hit a sore spot. Not all rural hospitals are friendly to outsiders, even if they are in need of nurses. My hardworking wife and I made the move to the country. She got a job at the local hospital, we met all the locals, checked out the job market, etc. One day, she was let go. We heard that we supposedly didn’t fit in with the locals. No one in town would hire her. We moved back to the city, and her old employer welcomed her back with open arms. Make sure you will be accepted in the community before the move, or you might regret it.
