Chilton County needs hospital

Dear editor:

My name is Haley Little. I’m 15 years old, and I feel that Chilton Medical Center should be re-opened because of how big Chilton County is.

As of Monday, Oct. 29, CMC was closed. If it hadn’t been for CMC on April 12, 2010, my father, David Little, would not be here because of a severe burn that happened at J&J Recycling. CMC stabilized David Little until Life Flight could get to CMC to take him to UAB Burn Center.

Chilton Medical Center needs to be open. Chilton Medical Center has saved many lives. I’m so thankful they have been here. If Chilton Medical Center hadn’t been here and open when my father got burned, he would have died.
