Birthing unit supporters walk to hospital

| June 23, 2014

DSC_0131COSHOCTON – Lance Hall, pictured far right, led a group of supporters, including several mothers with infants born at Coshocton Hospital, from the gazebo at the courthouse to Coshocton Hospital on Saturday, June 21 to deliver a letter expressing their disappointment with the impending closing of the birthing unit at Coshocton Hospital on June 27.

Hall read the letter that was carried by the group at the gazebo and several of the mothers spoke about the quality of care they had received at Coshocton Hospital. One mother talked about the increased burden the closing will place on young mothers in the community, especially expectant teen mothers, focusing on transportation needs, poor weather conditions affecting travel to Zanesville and other factors.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
