Opinion: Porter is making a mistake in excluding part-timers from health benefits

Posted on November 19, 2015 |
By Sharon Racusin

Opinion: Porter Medical Center engaged in union busting

Posted on November 19, 2015 |
By Millard Cox

Porter Hospital ramp project.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — The front entrance of Porter Hospital will soon get a big makeover that will include an access ramp for mobility-impaired people and a spruced-up lobby.

It’s a more-than-$140,000 project that Porter Medical Center (PMC) officials are calling “long overdue,” and one that will be made possible through the generosity of the PMC Auxiliary and an anonymous benefactor who is making a $25,000 contribution in honor of longtime Porter President Jim Daily, who will soon retire.
