“We have so much available that we can’t afford to give it to everyone,” William Plested, president-elect of the American Medical Association, said about our nation’s health care system. Plested (in photo), a California surgeon who graduated from Wichita East High School in 1954, told The Eagle editorial board Wednesday that at some point, society and legislatures will need to decide what medical services to provide to patients who can’t afford to pay for their own care. We must find a balance, he said, between not providing any care and providing anything they want.
