Kent joins other towns opposing hospital cutback

KENT —Joining with two other Region One towns, the Kent Board of Selectmen approved a resolution to be sent to state officials opposing planned reductions in services at Sharon Hospital.

The unanimous action was taken at their regular meeting on Thursday, April 21.

Noting that selectmen in the towns of Salisbury and Cornwall have already expressed opposition to the changes, First Selectman Jean Speck discussed the impact of discontinuation of services on the town.

She singled out just one of the planned changes, the elimination of after-hours surgery.

“Nuvance is doing the community no service whatsoever,” said Selectman Rufus de Rham.

He  also discussed the  potential far-reaching effects of the hospital’s plan to reduce services.
