Community fights to keep Stamford hospice open

Stamford residents and community leaders are fighting to keep the city's only hospice care facility from closing.

The group running the Rosenthal Hospice facility sent a letter to patients saying it plans to shut down by the end of this month.

Supporters say the city needs the hospice, while management claims a lack of finances make it impossible to stay open.

State representative Patricia Miller of Stamford hopes state regulators will work with them so the patients can be cared for.

Miller is asking administrators for more time in hopes of coming up with a solution to keep the facility up and running.
