In response to Governor Malloy’s cuts to funding hospitals during the last legislative session, Bristol Hospital in an effort to remain competitive and generate new revenue streams will offer coupons and sales on operative surgeries, procedures and x-rays. But that is not all.
Next year Bristol Hospital will begin offering sales and mark down prices on emergency room visits during the 4th of July, Memorial Day and Presidents Day by offering 50-80 percent savings on most emergency procedures, especially those not covered by insurance. “If you have an emergency it will be best to have it done during the patriotic holidays,” proclaimed Priceline.com.
Typically med-centers and walk-in clinics offer lower prices than their traditional emergency room counterparts but not anymore. Emergency room patients are going to be encouraged to be savvy and comparison shop when choosing a hospital during an emergency. Heart attack? Gunshot wound? Appendix bursts? Patients will be able to negotiate a price with the ambulance attendants while en route to the ER.
They will also provide gift cards and extend two for one sales on hip and knee replacement surgeries.
And to boost sales in their sagging Nephrology Department, they are offering a special for the first 100 patients who elect to have dialysis.
Lastly, if you enjoyed your service in the emergency room, Bristol Hospital will have a tip jar so you can show your appreciation.
These pricing policies are expected to be implemented by the end of this fiscal year or the beginning of the new fiscal year, whichever comes first.

This morning Forestville retailers reported that no brawls, melees or fracases occurred during Black Friday shopping, much to the disappointment of local residents. “I so wanted an all-out brawl; a real barn burner you know,” said Dewey Jasper. “I look forward to fights between bargain hunters. It’s part of Christmas.”
Zack Flanders was disappointed too. “What is wrong with people? Don’t they know fights are expected? Where was the hair pulling, the kicking with the yelling and the screaming?”
According to Mr. Flanders people need unruly Black Friday shoppers descending into violence, “People want the violence. They need the violence they crave the violence. I guess in some way it’s a gift. When Christmas shoppers don’t fight it is selfish because the fighting makes us feel better about ourselves, and that in and of itself is the spirit of Christmas,” he observed.

Green Hills School, site of the John Rowland Appreciation Dinner
Tickets for the John Rowland Appreciation Dinner to be held Saturday at 9 p.m. in Forestville are still available. Rowland was the 86th governor of the state of Connecticut and a twice convicted felon.
The original ticket price was $15 but was reduced to $10 and then $5 due to a lack of interest. Tickers are now free and can be obtained through the Forestville Chamber of Commerce.
Also, due to the anticipated small crowd, the venue moved from the banquet hall at Nuchie’s Restaurant, which can seat 300 people to the Family Resource Center on the first floor of Green Hills School, which can seat about 20 people, maybe. The menu will consist of food items from the school menu.
The scheduled speakers are fellow political luminaries and convicted felons:
Bridgeport, Connecticut, Mayor Joe Ganim (federal corruption charges for racketeering, conspiracy and bribery).
Former Connecticut State Senator, Ernie Newton (felony conviction for bribery, mail fraud and tax evasion).
Former Mayor of Hartford, Connecticut, Eddie Perez (felony conviction for bribery, fabricating evidence, and conspiracy to fabricate evidence).
Hope to see you there!
Et tu, Brute?

Clerks Without Borders™ is a humanitarian clerical organization founded in Forestville.
In 2014, the last year records are available, over 500 clerks and file clerks provided clerical aid in the manner of general filing, mailing letters, scanning documents, proofreading emails, moving boxes and making coffee for troubled businesses ravaged by poor record keeping all over the world.
Poor record keeping is problematic so Clerks Without Borders™ eliminates excessive clutter in disorganized environments by correlating and organizing files inside filing cabinets and off site storage if necessary.
Clerical workers volunteer their time to solve issues of poor filing and terrible record keeping.
Due to the current civil war in South Sudan, Clerks Without Borders™ is headed to the devastated war-torn region to organize the inventory of a flea market. They will be joined by Custodians Without Borders™, which will be there to sweep and empty garbage cans.
