Since 1995 I have been making visits to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. I have also had an extended stay at this hospital when my son was ill. I have never understood why an excellent hospital committed to healing and long-term health has a fast-food chain on site. It’s almost comparable to a drug-rehab letting dealers set up deals in the rehab lobby.
I applaud Parkland Hospital in Dallas on removing McDonald’s from it’s campus. You can read about this change as reported by The Dallas Morning News. I believe in a free society individuals should be able to make personal choices on their food intake, but having a fast food chain avaiable for a captive audience of sick people seems very anti-productive.
