Viewer survey: Share your thoughts on rural health care
COLUMBIA - Access to health care can be a matter of life or death.
Callaway County's only hospital almost closed in September, and future patients would have been forced to travel around 30 minutes to Columbia, Jefferson City or Mexico for the nearest hospital.
Some counties in mid-Missouri don't have a hospital at all, requiring some people to travel more than half an hour to the nearest one.
