Subject: Letter to Governor Regarding the Healthcare Issues of Arthur, Nebraska
Dear Mr. Ricketts,
I hope this letter will find you in the best of health. Being an honorable and law-abiding citizen of the United States of America, I would like to bring a very important and crucial matter into your notice. I am a resident of Arthur, Nebraska which is a very small town, in fact only a 700 mile of a piece of land in the country seat of Nebraska (Olson, 1997). The population of the town is only 465 people and it is the fifth least populated towns in the United States.
Being a very small town, both in terms of area and population, the residents of Arthur are facing serious health and safety issues. There is no major hospital or even a small clinic in the town where the residents can go and consult a doctor (Kaye, et al., 2015). There was also a mobile clinic that used to visit and stop at highway once a week-long time ago due to the high expenses of the van (Schoenfeld, & McKay, 2010). The nearest hospital or the medical facility to Arthur is 40 miles south of Arthur, in the town of Ogallala, where only two doctors are available as the family practitioners (Helget, & Smith, 2002) (Longest Jr, & Darr, 2014).
On behalf of all the residents of Arthur, I would like to request you that kindly pay attention to this issue and take the most appropriates measures in this respect. We understand that opening a hospital in such a small town would be a far cry and a much expensive demand but at least there can be small medical facilities like a polyclinic or a clinic, where a doctor is available all the time. If the doctor is unable to attend the patient, there should be a nurse who is available to at least attend the emergency cases. I hope you will pay heed to our suggestions and act in the best interest of the residents of Arthur utilizing all your powers and resources.
