If Lakeland Regional would stop spending money foolishly it would be an improvement all the way around. Yes, they needed the Women’s and Children’s wing but they did not need that huge empty, open space with the awful multi-thousands of dollars sculpture in it. Or that huge largely unused auditorium. Total waste of money.
