TUESDAY 2/10: Rural Health Presentation by Nancy Stern

Northampton County Supervisor Granville Hogg urges interested constituents to attend a presentation to the Board of Supervisors by Nancy Stern, Eastern Shore Rural Health, beginning 5 p.m. Tuesday, February 10 at the County chambers in Eastville. Hogg notes that the hospital will relocate in 22 months, and “we, especially in the southern end of the county, need to be cognizant of that fact. There is the need to take some action to assure there is some source of medical assistance available. In addition to our personal needs, there is the need to attract other commercial activity, and all County residents recognize the need for additional employment opportunities,” Hogg said. He welcomes comments emailed to [email protected].
