    Shumlin to attend hospital opening

    MONTPELIER — Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin will be traveling to Brattleboro for a ribbon-cutting today at a newly renovated section of the Brattleboro Retreat psychiatric hospital that will house state patients.

    The new unit at the Retreat is one of several approaches the state is taking to replace the former Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury after it was flooded by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.

    Another is a 25-bed hospital being built in Berlin, as well as smaller psychiatrics units elsewhere around the state.
