Health care demanded

Some companies are starting on-site medical clinics in an effort to combat constantly rising health care costs.  The Pioneer Press reports on a St. Paul-area company’s decision to do just that.

Here is the truly interesting take away from the story:

The manufacturer opened an on-site clinic Wednesday that will provide free primary care to its 450 workers and their families. Two workers showed up right away, and one with pneumonia sought care during Thursday’s ribbon-cutting. (emphasis added)

During the ribbon cutting! Is this an indication of the state of health care?  Where people forgo necessary treatment until an affordable option presents itself?

Apparently so.  And it’s not good.
