NORTH ADAMS COMMUNITY MEETING TONIGHT, 5 P.M. AT THE AMERICAN LEGION HALL, 91 AMERICAN LEGION DRIVE, NORTH ADAMS
AS EFFORT CONTINUES TO RESTORE A FULL SERVICE HOSPITAL
Residents, workers and community leaders will gather to hear updates on the crisis and to plan next steps in the campaign to restore a full service hospital to meet the health care needs of the 38,000 residents of Northern Berkshire County who are now into their second week with no access to vital health care services after the illegal closing of their century-old hospital.
The meeting provides the media with a great opportunity to meet with residents and learn about upcoming activities in this community-wide and statewide campaign to protect this vulnerable community.
The story of North Adams could be a story repeated in other communities in Massachusetts and the nation in this era of profit driven health care consolidation.
