WORCESTER – A community meeting to discuss Spectrum Health System plan to open a new location at 1023 Main St. was held on Thursday, Oct. 12, at 6 PM at the Belmont A.M.E. Zion Church on Illinois Street.

Spectrum purchased the location that formerly housed the American Legion Post and added it to its mobile service route in September. District Four Councilor Sarai Rivera claims Spectrum plans to merge two programs, including a methadone clinic, at the location.

Rivera called for the community meeting, which was advertised as including Spectrum leadership and Mayor Joe Petty.

Shortly after 8:30 PM, Rivera started a Facebook Live session to react to the meeting. She openly expressed how unhappy she was about how the meeting transpired. She was also directly critical of Spectrum CEO Kurt Isaacson.
