Martha Borawski and Bill Brandt: Grateful for free shuttle to Mass General in Boston

Thank you and kudos to Cooley Dickinson Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. This is our very first letter to the Gazette and it is to say a “huge thank you” to these hospitals for instituting a shuttle that is offered daily to Massachusetts General Hospital from Northampton.

It is a blessing to have this service offered to the residents of western Massachusetts. It is free and it offers residents a chance to get treatments in Boston that might not be available in western Mass. It is free! It offers residents who are unable to drive themselves or have to burden relatives or friends to drive them to Boston.

It delivers patients right to the Wang Center. The drivers are wonderful, courteous and refuse a gratuity. How lucky are we that this merger took place. We are so glad that we know where our donation to the Cooley Dickinson Hospital went and that we are benefiting from it.

We hope everyone will give a little something.
