Crossley, MA, President/CEO of EBC said, “We fervently believe in a person’s ability to recover, and we commit ourselves to providing the highest quality of service, regardless of one’s ability to pay.

We want to express our gratitude to them, and to The Rhode Island Foundation as well as to Howard Sutton, Publisher, President & CEO of The Providence Journal Co.
