Organizers say they want to have community involvement in their decisions.
"It's a look at the community and the health care needs of the population we serve. What might be some unmet needs or barriers that people have in the community getting access to health care," said Steve Davis, Director of Marketing for Mercy.
Comments are read and according to Davis, the more suggestions you make, the better for everyone.
"The philosophy is that nobody is as smart as all of us are together. It's just a place for people to say, you know what, I've always wondered why you guys don't do this or have you thought of this, or this would work better for me if you could stay open longer or put a clinic here. Just do something different," said Davis.
