KBE(Torrington)  – Farmington based KBE Building Corporation has given Charlotte Hungerford Hospital’s Emergency & Medical Services at 115 Spencer Street in Winsted a $1,500 grant to purchase two new all-weather benches for staff and patients. The benches were recently installed at the center’s main and cardio pulmonary & rehabilitation entrances, and complement recently completed landscaping and exterior improvements.

“We are so appreciative to our friends at KBE for making these benches possible. They provide a comfortable, quiet place to wait and rest and are already being used daily.” says Michele Rainville, RN, Clinical Manager of CHH Emergency & Medical Care.
