We are neighbors who support Providence Portland Medical Center maintaining state-of-the-art facilities and we realize the bonus of great healthcare in our own front yard. However, we would like Providence to become more proactive in remedying the difficulties that arise when a hospital tries to do business in a residential area. We want Providence to join us in protecting our health by preserving and restoring our skies, our sidewalks, and our safety.
