Two groups in Mexico that are continuing to push for the merger between SSM Health and MU Healthcare joined AM 1340 KXEO this (Friday) morning live in the studio.
Larry Webber spokesperson for Progress Mexico says it is important to continue to have local healthcare.
Mark Farnen Communications Director for Citizens for Healthy Community Hospitals says it is about economic development and access to healthcare.
Another group called Coalition for Choice formed by Kansas City Attorney Matt Swift opposes the merger.
MU Health Care officials signed a letter of intent to purchase St. Mary’s-Audrain and St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City back in August.
