Public Concerned About Hospital Closing

Many people are concerned about the closing of Memorial Hospital in Pawtucket.  Care New England took ownership of the struggling facility four years ago and after a deal fell through to sell it, it announced the facility's closing.  The Department of Health is examining a proposal to close the emergency department and keep internal medicine and family care there, but nurses say they're unsure about job security.  Others say the closing will have a negative impact on the area.
