PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Governor Gina M. Raimondo released the following statement today on Care New England’s update regarding community-based care in Blackstone Valley:

“The plan released today is comprehensive and will ensure that Rhode Islanders in Pawtucket and across Blackstone Valley continue to have access to high quality health services. As I’ve said all along, no one should lose their job because of this decision and Care New England needs to provide a plan for how they will continue to serve Pawtucket and the Blackstone Valley. My administration will continue to work with CNE on this transition and will hold the system accountable to implementing this proposed plan.”
