Great news! The community hospital at Dobbs Ferry has been saved. 14 months ago NYS announced plans to close down the hospital. The entire community worked together to persuade the state that the hospital (which makes a profit) should be allowed to stay open. State Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins was recognized by hospital officials at the official announcement ceremony (held at noon) for the key role she played in saving the hospital - reaching out to the Governor, state health officials and prominent lawmakers.
A special thanks to the hundreds of residents who signed or circulated petitions, wrote letters, put lawn signs on your front lawns, called lawmakers. Your voice was heard. This hospital is a community treasure. PAUL FEINER
