Emerson Hospital Elects New Corporator from Littleton, Kitty O’Connor


At Emerson Hospital’s Annual Meeting held recently, Kitty O’Connor, a Littleton resident, was elected as a Corporator of the hospital. Corporators represent the health interests of the 25 communities served by Emerson.

“As Emerson continues to succeed as a top community hospital in today’s challenging health care environment, our Corporators are an integral part of our mission to provide the best health care to every person in the many towns that the hospital and health system serves,” said Paul D. Birch, Chair, Emerson Hospital Board of Directors. “Through their work as ambassadors, they educate the community on ways that Emerson is expanding its services to treat an ever-growing population using the latest technology and surgical techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, while maintaining its focus on providing the highest quality compassionate care to patients.  We are grateful to our Corporators who have accepted the responsibility to serve the community in this important way.” 

Emerson relies on its volunteer corporators as ambassadors of the hospital through the work they do communicating information about the hospital's programs and services to the residents and businesses in their communities. Corporators also elect the hospital’s Board of Directors and new Corporators each year at the hospital’s annual meeting.

“We are proud of Kitty, our new Corporator from Littleton,” added Christine Schuster, president and CEO of Emerson. “We look forward to working with her to deepen our relationships with residents and local organizations as we expand our services in new and exciting areas to provide advanced, quality health care for everyone in the area.”

Kitty has worked as attorney with the Acton firm of Eckel, Morgan & O’Connor LLC since 2002.  Her practice focuses on estate planning, Elder Law, guardianships/conservatorships, and long-term care planning. She is a long-time member of both the Women’s Bar Association and the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. She is a former President of the Women’s Bar Association and is the current Treasurer of the Littleton Country Gardeners. Over the years, Kitty has had many clients successfully treated at Emerson and both she and her husband have received excellent care at Emerson. 

She is part of the class of 2020 which is comprised of corporators from towns throughout Emerson Hospital’s service area including Acton, Bedford, Carlisle, Concord, Groton and  Maynard.
