    Petition sent
    Do you think a petition delivered to the Statehouse on Tuesday will help reopen NARH?
     I don't know.
    Thousands of signatures deliver single message: Save NARH

    Mike O'Brien, a former employee at the now closed North Adams Regional Hospital, handed a petition to a top aide to Gov. Deval Patrick aide on Tuesday, urging the governor to "immediately and personally intervene in what is a community disaster." "An emergency room is not enough," read the petition for continued health care services at the hospital. "We need a full-service community hospital in Northern Berkshire County." O'Brien, who had worked at the hospital for 36 years and is the former local 1199 union chief, said he came to the Statehouse with more than 80 nurses, community leaders and residents of north Berkshire County to put pressure on the state's top legislators to help reopen the facility. "I'm here to show support and to get a full-service hospital back up and running," O'Brien said.  Full Story
