Why go to Boston? Hospitals make pitch for patients to stay local

The Eagle Tribune, February 26, 2008
Under a new partnership that sets aside years of rivalry, a group of five community hospitals in the Merrimack Valley region of Massachusetts is launching a campaign to encourage residents to stay local for their medical care.
