New Hampshire brain injury unit to close
AP/Boston Globe, October 15, 2009
Paula Mattis, New Hampshire Hospital director, told employees that a unit for brain injury patients will close by Oct. 30. Patients will be discharged or transferred, and workers will be laid off or reassigned, she said in an e-mail. The program is the only one of its kind in state, and the director of the Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire said the unit's patients may have to leave New Hampshire.
