Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital would like to extend a public thank you to the Deerfield Valley Rotary for providing a grant to support its emergency department expansion project. This project will improve patient privacy, comfort, security, and care.

To the Editor,
Legislative leadership has laid out their agenda for this session. Despite the dire state of health care - almost half of Vermonters under the age of 65 are “underinsured” - it is clear they have no intention of doing anything meaningful to address the state’s health care...
To the Editor,
