Why did CHN affiliate?

The previous articles I have submitted focused on medical issues that I thought people might be interested in. I have tried to provide accurate information to increase readers’ knowledge about health related subjects. However, this article will be different in that it will discuss some of the challenges and changes that are affecting health care delivery and specifically how these challenges have led to some recent changes in our community hospital.
