That is a total shame...I'm not a resident of this area, but,in the past have used Shoreline for myself, my wife and a close friend. I can't begin to think what I would have done if Shoreline was not available. I divide my time residing on Marco Island, Manhattan, and most recently residing on my Motoryacht in Old Saybrook. Not to have a medical facility like shoreline is a decision of poor vision. Recently I went there to have some blook work done and the waiting room was packed with senior citizens, and some invalids. Now,what would these people do if Shoreline was not there? If this is a question of money, which I'm quite sure it is, why not draft a donation event or then get the politicans the citizens elected involved? Let the voice of the people be heard Connecticut residents! As said, I don't reside here but I would really be discouraged to find that Shoreline left this area. I've seen the same thing happen on Marco Island"s emervency clinic only to have that decision recindered at the 11th hour, because the residents and politicans of Marco got involved.

The article says that that the clinic may move to Westbrook, not out of the community. I agree, they provide great care. My family and I have been using the clinic since the early 1970's.

Nobody said the clinic was closing for good and with no access to local emergency care, Person Who Lives on Marco Island and on a Yacht But Nobody Cares. The building is outdated and too small for what it has become. It needs to become bigger and the land that's it is currently on is too small for any new additions. It won't be moving out of the area.....probably the next town over. But seeing you're not a true resident here, you wouldn't have any clue.
