One of New Hampshire’s largest ambulance providers will shut down next month.
Rockingham Regional Ambulance Inc., which is run by St. Joseph’s Hospital in Nashua, will give pink slips to its 160 employees when a perilous state budget situation forces it to close its doors Sept. 30, according to WMUR.
“It’s the end of an era, if you will, for us and for me personally, as well,” Chris Stawasz, executive director of Rockingham Ambulance, told WMUR. Stawasz has been with the company for 30 years.
St. Joseph cited cuts to Medicaid reimbursement in the tighter stat budget that went into effect last month as the reason for the closure.
