As the 38,000 residents of Northern Berkshire County enter their fourth week with no access to desperately needed health care services following the illegal closing of North Adams Regional Hospital, concerned members of the community will be boarding buses from North Adams on April 15 to deliver petitions with more than 10,000 signatures to the Governor and other legislative leaders in Boston, calling for immediate restoration of a full service hospital for this embattled community.
On the way to Boston, the group will make a stop at Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) headquarters in Framingham, to demonstrate the need for a more concerted state effort to address what is a health care disaster in Northern Berkshire County. MEMA was recently activated to respond to a cell tower falling down in North Adams, but there has been no similar response for this crisis.
