Take the Pledge: I AM New Day

April 14, 2015

***UPDATE | 6/29/2015***

THANK YOU, NORTHEAST CONNECTICUT

The overall state budget cuts to Day Kimball Healthcare have been eliminated! DKH has been awarded $3 million in additional funding in each of the next two years through a state fund developed specifically to provide extra support to small community hospitals. These funds will offset the $5 million in cuts to DKH that were ultimately included in the passed state budget.

This victory is shared by us all. It is owed to the support of all in our community who made their voices heard through thousands of e-mail and paper pledges in our I AM New Day campaign. And it is due to the tireless work of Senator Mae Flexer and Representatives Daniel Rovero, Christine Rosati and Paul Brycki in taking our message to Hartford and advocating for the lives and livelihood of Northeast Connecticut throughout the state budget process.

Throughout the budget process we've stressed that, as a small community hospital and healthcare system, Day Kimball is critical to both the personal health and economic health of our communities.

The awarding of these funds will help us to continue in our mission to keep Northeast Connecticut healthy.
