Now Moses Cone is on the offensive with its plan to build an outpatient medical complex that would include an emergency room in north High Point, a move that drew a response from the city. Turn it down, HP officials told the state, although it’s never clear whether the state is listening.

Doesn’t common sense dictate that more hospitals keep more people healthy?
