Concerning George Aul's letter “Health-care greed” : My family has supported Excela Health Latrobe Hospital for more than 20 years. Additionally, several of my family members have worked there. We were thrilled to hear that Excela fought off a for-profit company that threatened the viability of the hospital by stealing rehab patients and sucking jobs out of Westmoreland County.

Excela runs a break-even business. Mr. Aul needs to understand that profitable rehab pays for countless other unprofitable health-care services.

To criticize Jennifer Miele, Excela Health's vice president of marketing and communications, for her comment in a news story about Post Acute Health Care LLC — “We were never going to allow them to encroach on our market share” — is ridiculous. There's a woman who helped fend off real greed.

Excela, keep fighting! Jen, keep up the good work. Mr. Aul, keep your letters to the editor professional.
