After last week’s emotional meeting on the announced closing of the North End Nursing Home, a group has formed under “Save the North End Nursing Home” with an online petition. They have also started a website and Facebook page, encouraging those interested to join.
The petition reads:
The North End community recently discovered Partners HealthCare’s plans to close the Spaulding Nursing Home and Rehab Center (formerly the North End Nursing Home) at 70 Fulton St., Boston. The decision to close this facility was made without any input from the community or concern for the impact on the long term residents who make their home there and receive daily visits from family members who are unable to travel easily to locations outside the neighborhood.

Once completed with signatures, the petition will be delivered to:
- Mayor of Boston, Martin J. Walsh
- Massachusetts Governor, Charles Baker
- State Representative, Aaron Michlewitz
- State Representative, Robert DeLeo
- State Senator, Joseph Boncore
- Boston City Councilor, Sal LaMattina
Save the North End Nursing Home said they will also be canvassing the community with a printed version of the petition.
An easy to remember link shortcut has been created at northendboston.com/nursing to share the online petition. A new website at SaveNorthEndNursingHome.org has also been setup to share information during the process.
