Hearing scheduled on sale of Landmark

Posted 8/5/13

WOONSOCKET – A public informational hearing on the proposed sale of Landmark Medical Center to Prime Healthcare Services of Ontario, Calif., has been scheduled for Monday, Sept. 30, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Woonsocket High School at 777 Cass Ave.

The hearing will be conducted by R.I. Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin’s office and the R.I. Department of Health.

At the hearing, after brief introductory remarks from state officials and the parties involved in the sale, public comment will be accepted.

Hearings held earlier this year in Pawtucket regarding the recently approved partnership of Memorial Hospital with the Care New England hospital system, and in Westerly regarding the sale of Westerly Hospital to Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London, Conn., were both sparsely attended.

However, previous hearings held in 2012 on the proposed sale of Landmark Medical Center to Steward Health Care of Boston, Mass., drew hundreds of residents to Woonsocket City Hall. Steward subsequently backed out of its deal to buy Landmark in September of 2012.

Written comments will also be accepted; they must be received by 4 p.m. on Oct. 7.

Written comments can be sent to Jodi Bourque, Office of the R.I. Attorney General, 150 South Main St,., Providence, 02903, or to Michael Dexter, R.I. Department of Health, Three Capital Hill, Room 404, Providence, R.I., 02908.
