Richard Rolke mentions in passing the non-profit society in Armstrong. This is the Haugen Community Healthcare Society which supports a clinic with five family doctors.
Achieving this required the foresight and dedication of numerous people as well as some good luck. Financing this clinic would have been impossible without the assistance of Dwight Johnson.
Another obstacle was, and is, the prevailing view in these times that the government should provide all medical services free of charge.
Our society depends on the contributions of time, effort and funds of those who realize what it takes to get and keep medical services in a community.
