WOONSOCKET â After a preliminary review of Landmark Medical Centerâs application to merge with Steward Health Care System, state regulators have deemed the paperwork incomplete, but a Landmark spokesman dismissed the notion that the assessment means the merger is in jeopardy.
âItâs not a bump,â said Bill Fischer. âQuite frankly it was expected because if you look at history thereâs no hospital conversion that Iâm aware of thatâs had an application deemed complete on the first pass.â
WOONSOCKET â Luigi Porreca Jr. is not a magician, but he and his father are going to turn metal into food for the poor this year â again.
The proprietors of L&R Scrap Metal Co. are sponsoring the 2nd Annual Help Feed the Hungry for the Holidays event, which raised enough cash to provide about 500 dinners for the hungry last year.
âThis year we hope to make it a thousand,â says Porreca.
But L&R needs your help â or at least your unwanted appliances â to make it happen.
