Westerly - The Westerly Hospital will host a community celebration to commemorate the one-year anniversary of its successful partnership with Lawrence + Memorial Hospital.
Westerly Hospital was acquired by L+M in June 2013, after years of financial instability and ultimately receivership in 2011. This fall, the hospital ended fiscal 2013 with a positive operating margin for the first time in many years.
The celebration will take place at 3 p.m. June 16 in the hospital's Henry J. Nardone Conference Center and will feature refreshments and a giveway, as well as remarks from Bruce Cummings, president and chief executive officer of L+M, and Stephen Greene, chairman of The Westerly Hospital's Board of Directors.
