The Block Island Times reports that the island’s health center won’t be partnering with Thundermist, a partnership the health center hoped would help defray costs and boost resources. The news came, according to the BI Times, as a surprise to attendees of a recent town council meeting. BIHS is also reeling after losing its director suddenly – for reasons that aren’t yet public.
The petite health center serves not only year-round residents of Block Island, but the many, many tourists who visit each year. They deal with lots of moped and bike accidents they told me when I visited recently.
