Where: Sheet Metal Workers Hall, Local #17

 Sponsored by the Coalition to Strengthen Carney Hospital*

Carney Hospital’s future is being studied and debated now in a variety of ways. We need to let decision makers at Caritas Christi Health Care know why we need Carney to remain as an acute care hospital with an active emergency room and a full range of medical services.

Come voice your concerns about preserving this vital community asset.
For more information, call the office of State Representative Martin J. Walsh, at
617.722.2090 and ask to speak with Michael Christopher.
