Sen. Formica, Day Kimball Hospital Fighting to Restore Funding Cuts

Sen. Paul Formica and state lawmakers on Mar. 16 welcomed healthcare professionals from across Connecticut to the State Capitol on Mar. 16 to mark “Hospital Day” and to urge Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to restore budget cuts to Connecticut hospitals.

Formica and healthcare advocates noted that the governor’s budget plan would require painful cuts in vital healthcare services to vulnerable individuals, including to mental health and safety net services. They noted that if the cuts are not restored, the ability of hospitals to deliver high-quality patient care will be reduced and jobs will be lost.

Sen. Formica represents Bozrah, East Lyme, a portion of Montville, New London, Old Lyme, a portion of Old Saybrook, Salem, and Waterford. He can be reached at 800 842-1421 or at [email protected] . On the web: www.senatorformica.com .
