Guest of the Stable: Toni Tomarazzo, HMHA Chair
The attempt by the Council of No to shut the hospital may in fact be stopped with a late development submitted in this early am guest piece by the hospital authority’s chairwoman:
|After closed session, Councilwoman Beth Mason and Councilman Mike Russo go for a stroll before they went ahead with their premeditated plan to kill the hospital.|
I have been working with our counsel and others since the irresponsible vote by the city council members Mason, Russo, Occhipinti and Castelano took place this evening where they refused to pass resolutions and first reading of an ordinance that would provide for the necessary funding to make a deal to maintain the hospital.
It appears that thanks to the work of the HMHA and the Mayor another option may exist to keep the hospital open and complete the sale to Hold Co
We are meeting at eight thirty tomorrow morning and it appears that a deal may be struck to not only keep the hospital open but provide for the continuation of all services and develop new ones like the card cath lab and long term care
I would appreciate you publishing this new development so that employees of the hospital understand that the HMHA and Mayor are doing all we can to keep this hospital open, even if certain council members don’t .
