Below is a selection of the latest news coverage on the closing of North Adams Regional Hospital. As you can see, the community is mobilizing to support themselves and to fight to restore their hospital. The most alarming piece is the first one, which details the impact of the closing on ambulance services for the region and the threat this poses to patient safety. We continue to call for the governor to take a greater role in ensuring the restoration of NARH as a full-service hospital. Every day that we allow this illegal closing to stand, residents of Northern Berkshire County are placed in ever-increasing jeopardy.
