I write this letter in response to a letter in your Sunday, Feb. 24 edition that in my opinion is not altogether accurate.
A letter-writer wrote, referring to the takeover of Albemarle Hospital, that he “being a Carolina boy, would have to pull for Duke,” referring to Duke LifePoint.
I would like to inform him and your readers that Duke LifePoint is headquartered in Brentwood, Tenn., which is a couple of miles south of Nashville, Tenn., which is close to 700 air miles from Elizabeth City, not 40 miles like Sentara hospitals are.
Tennessee has not been a part of North Carolina since 1790.
You can go to Duke LifePoint’s website and see this.
