Watch Hill Harbor. Watch Hill is a particularly rich part of Westerly.

Westerly (R.I.) Hospital’s parent company, Lawrence and Memorial Hospital,  seeks to affiliate  with much larger  and famous Yale New Haven Health System. This would leave Rhode Island’s two dominant hospital systems, Lifespan and Care New England, out  in the cold in an area of southwestern  coastal Rhode Island and southeastern Connecticut with many affluent patients with good private insurance. Lifespan and Care New England themselves have resumed merger talks.

L&M spokesman Michael O’Farrell  told Rhode Island Public Radio that if regulators approve the affiliation,“Yale New Haven Health System will invest $300 million  in eastern Connecticut and western Rhode Island.”
