Ari says Holy Cross wants “to serve everyone” (read minorities). And they want to serve the elderly, those hit by the flu this winter. And Ari (with his thick accent) is here to get minorities to support the hospital.
Nothing against thick accents, minorities, the elderly, the poor. But I guess that doesn’t really explain:
1. Why build another hospital? There are these populations in Silver Spring, home of Holy Cross.
2. If you want to build a hospital in the upcounty, be honest. You want money. They need another hospital up there. This is your chance to develop a new cash cow. Otherwise, Holy Cross knows squat about the upcounty. Proof: You are trying to build a hospital on a college campus, when you should be aiming further north, where there is more room for construction. And you won’t be competing with a Rockville (read: Shady Grove) hospital.
We return you to Ari, one way or the other Holy Cross’ minority representative.
