What is Mid Coast up to?

What Mid Coast fails to mention is that Parkview does NOT want to combine with Mid Coast but does want to combine forces with CMMC. Mid Coast's proposal is the equivalent of CMMC proposing (filing a CON) to "merge" with St. Mary's and shut it down, or vice versa. Or, what if Parkview proposed shutting down Mid Coast or Maine Health? It is just plain silly. That is an abuse of the Certificate of Need process. CMMC's proposal allows Parkview to continue operating whereas Mid Coast would shut it down and eliminate all of its local competition. Not healthy, not fair, and not the American way.
