“Broadlawns Medical Center has a longstanding history of attending to the medical needs of Polk County residents. With its origins dating back to 1903, the hospital was established to provide medical care for the indigent, and the same mission of service drives the hospital today.” Broadlawns Medical Center Website
At one time, “medical care for the indigent” was the responsibility of local citizens and was paid for through property taxes. Today, with federal and state programs in place, that funding that care has been shifted.
Should property tax support for Broadlawns Medical Center be eliminated, reduced and/or redirected to other community priorities such as mental health needs?
