The latest Buena Vista County Hospital expansion is as much philosophical as physical. The Women's Health Center is a timely idea that can supplement the exceptional job already being done by the clinics, physicians, hospitals and programs in the community.
As a health professional with a wealth of human knowledge, Kim Weiland is an excellent choice to head the project. Input by local doctors and nurses is also invaluable. The center will no doubt draw people into Storm Lake for their services and health education in an increasingly competitive environment.
