North Adams Regional Hospital Sends in Police

To Evacuate All Personnel and Occupiers

The Hospital Emergency Department Will Close

Within the Hour

         Northern Berkshire County Will Have NO Access to Health Care Services as the State Abandons Those in Need

 

This decision comes after MNA officials had met with hospital management and we were told that care in the ED was perfectly safe and there were enough supplies to operate the service through the weekend. 

 

This is a travesty for the community and workforce of Northern Berkshire County.  In response efforts are being made to step up the occupation of the hospital, and for increased calls for intervention by the Governor and others to address this public health crisis.
