I read with interest the article "Come Hither, Dear Doc" (Nov. 7). Just one week earlier, St. Joseph Health System decided not to renew the contract with the emergency doctors. The group had a combined time of over 100 years here in Humboldt County. At a time when the pool of doctors is becoming smaller and smaller, why? The result is more recruitment, more expense and a loss to this community.
