WOONSOCKET — It came at the end of the day, but for Landmark Medical Center a decision by R.I. Department of Health Director Michael Fine supporting its acquisition by Prime Healthcare appears to be a major step forward toward a new beginning for the local 214-bed acute care hospital.

Fine issued decisions of approval on both change of effective control applications by Landmark and Prime late Friday, and also ruled favorably on their application for an acquisition under the state’s Hospital Conversion Act.

Fontaine, Baldelli-Hunt scuffle over BOE reports

October 26, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Mayor Leo Fontaine has amended a campaign finance report submitted to the state Board of Elections this week after the original erroneously indicated he neither spent nor took in any money since the beginning of the month.

Richard Thornton, director of campaign finance for the state Board of Elections, said the corrected report was filed on Wednesday, a day after the deadline, and since it contains significantly new information from the original, Fontaine will be charged a $25 late fee.
