Last summer, Springfield Medical Care Systems, the parent organization for Springfield Hospital and the local community health center network filed for bankruptcy.

As the bankruptcy proceedings continue through this winter, Springfield Hospital hopes to emerge as one entity, with Springfield Medical Care Systems emerging as another, which controls medical and dental clinics in Springfield, Londonderry, Ludlow, Chester, Rockingham and in Charlestown, New Hampshire.

But what does this dissolution mean for the clinics as the hospital potentially partners with a larger hospital organization?

Our guest is:

  • Josh Dufresne, Acting CEO of the Sprinfeild Medical Care Systems
