Miriam and Summit: A Neighborhood SurveyIn the May 2004 issue of the Summit News we included a survey on neighborhood opinion of Miriam Hospital and their plans for expansion.
The survey asks neighbors what constraints, if any, should exist to limit hospital growth. It asks residents to indicate their concern and what impact, negative or positive, the hospital has now, and what they anticipate the effect will be of the proposed construction.
More people responded to the survey than have attended any of the public meetings that have been held regarding this issue, and the sentiment was overwhelmingly one of concern and a desire for stronger limits on hospital growth. Significantly, almost half of the respondents included hand-written comments.
The results were summarized and presented at a public meeting hosted by SNA on May 24th at Hillside Health Center.
