BREWSTER — Officials at Three Rivers Hospital in Brewster will consider offering only non-emergency surgery, and losing the ability to treat patients with life-threatening injuries.

No decisions have been made about whether the hospital will drop from a Trauma Level 4 to a Trauma Level 5, resulting in an emergency room designed to stabilize and transfer all patients who come in with a condition serious enough to die.
