Shutting NARH

No.Adams Regional Hospital EntranceWith only three days notice on March 28, 2014, North Adams Regional Hospital closed its doors leaving 37,000 residents without access to emergency care and 530 employees without work. The closing sent shock waves through an already impoverished community, forcing small business to close and residents of Northern Berkshire County to mobilize and demand the return of quality health care. This short documentary by Peter Dassati ’15 explores how former employees, elected representatives, and members of the community are dealing with this shattering experience.
