Fairview secures $100,000 grant to improve healthcare access

GREAT BARRINGTON – Fairview Hospital is planning to expand access and improve care in South County with the help of a $99,871 Health and Human Services grant.

The improvements, according to Doreen Hutchinson, the hospital’s vice president of operations, will include creating an expanded network that comprises two major partners and 10 smaller ones.

“Access to population health is often an overlooked aspect of the right to health,” Hutchinson said in a grant announcement speech. “Without practical access, the right to health is an empty promise.”
