Saving our hospital was the subject of the presentation given by guest speaker Mr. Vince Cataldo, Administrator of Prevost Memorial Hospital. For forty years Cataldo has been employed with the hospital and knows the daily operations and importance of having a hospital locally and knowing of the services it provide.

As a part of the St. Elizabeth medical group, the hospital has staff members to cover all areas of care for its patients. From emergency care to stocking supplies and medicine were some of the topics covered in the presentation.

Mr. Cataldo said his goal is to inform everyone in the community of the proposal by the Parish to reduce funding to the hospital that is generated through sales taxes. Losing any portion of the funds would be detrimental.
