Help Western Connecticut Health Network Oppose Drastic Budget Cuts

Thursday, April 04, 2013 - Danbury, CT

The Governor of Connecticut wants to cut more than $550 million to hospitals statewide over the next two years, which includes $30 million to Western Connecticut Health Network. Simply put, if the budget cuts are approved:

  • We will be forced to cut services
  • We will be forced to reduce health care staff
  • The quality and availability of healthcare for our communities will suffer.

This is a public debate that our communities and our network cannot afford to lose.

If you have not already expressed your opposition to this proposal, now is the time! Go to to contact your legislators. In less than five minutes online, you can make your opinion heard by the legislators who will vote on this issue. After you reach out, please send the link to your friends and family to ask for their support.
