To the editor:
The news that the Water’s Edge facility might be closing the BISTRO Café in favor of Urgent Care is disheartening.
Obesity is a national problem; it takes a healthy diet along with exercise to counteract this trend.
The Bistro offers healthy food and it could also provide a place of teaching patients about healthy diet along with exercise.
The Dalles is attempting to become a Blue Zone City and the Bistro could be a good fit.
Surely there is a need for Urgent Care but there is also a need for healthy food options. A more efficient site for Urgent Care would be a site closer to the population both the east and west.
My hope is that MCMC will regain its vision.
