Public health: A list Tacoma doesn’t want to be on

Re: “Tacoma area fails in health ranking,” (TNT, 7/28).

Thank you for the article about the South Sound being identified as the worst in the state for preventable hospital stays.

It’s sad that the Tacoma area has had these bad records; first it was drugs and murder, and now this. Hopefully we can come up with a solution and become a healthy, growing city.

It’s good for us to be informed of this problem; it’s a start to finding a solution.
