New York City hospital closing stirs fear

Wall Street Journal, April 8, 2010

The decision to end most services at St. Vincent's Hospital, New York City's last Catholic acute-care center, has set off a wave of concern among doctors, nurses, and area residents who fear there will be a gap in care, the Wall Street Journal reports. Patients and residents of the Greenwich Village neighborhood said the closing of the 160-year-old institution meant they would have to travel dozens of blocks on New York City's congested streets to get to the nearest emergency room, for example.
