In Missouri, the state’s health care system is grappling with a crisis.
Health insurance coverage has been in decline since the recession and more and more people are finding it difficult to pay for basic needs like dental care.
That has forced many of the state�s largest hospitals to find new ways to attract and retain residents.
One of those is the Heartland Hospital Center in St. Louis, where many residents are on Medicaid and others rely on private insurance.
But while most hospitals are now covered through the state system, the hospital is facing a shortage in insurance coverage, according to a letter from the Missouri Department of Insurance to the St. Charles Post-Dispatch.
The letter indicates that in addition to Heartland, another hospital in the St Louis area is struggling with a shortage.
The St. Mary�s Hospital and Clinics in St Louis and St. Peters, where some residents are covered by private insurance, are also struggling.
Heartland has already announced it will close its doors and shut down in 2018, but that is not expected to happen until 2019.
The hospitals are in the midst of a $4.3 million bond issue.
The hospital�s president, David T. Stebbins, has said he hopes to find an alternate source of insurance for patients.
�This is a really hard time for the people of St. Joseph,� Stebbsins said.
�We are going to do everything we can to make sure the hospitals are covered.� Heartland and other St. James� hospitals are among the biggest employers in St, Joseph and the surrounding St. Bernard County.
The county is home to the hospital system.
The city of St Joseph has about 50,000 residents.
It is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the state.
The state has about $30 billion in economic impact.
