Framingham, MA, board approves Newton-Wellesley clinic plan

Boston Globe, May 8, 2009

The Framingham (MA) Planning Board voted to approve an outpatient screening and surgical facility proposed by Newton-Wellesley Hospital, reigniting opposition from supporters of community hospitals in Framingham and Natick. Opponents of the proposal by Newton-Wellesley, a nonprofit institution, say it poses unfair competition to MetroWest's facilities, potentially drawing away so many patients that the for-profit operation could close.
