Major NY Hospital To Close
As the Zombulator drains the cash, last phase of concentric contraction will be the shutting down of government....and government supported health care.
St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Center, the last Catholic general hospital in New York City, has voted to close its inpatient and acute care centers, effectively closing the hospital after more than 160 years.
The vote, confirmed by a hospital spokesman, came as St. Vincent's has struggled for six months with a budget deficit and has perched on the brink of bankruptcy, just a few years after emerging from an earlier bankruptcy filing. The hospital has tried for months to find a partner or new owner. A potential deal with Mt. Sinai Medical Center fell through last week.
The State of New York pumped $9 million in emergency loans so the hospital could keep running and meet its payroll, Gov. David Paterson's office said.
St. Vincent's will cease elective surgeries on April 14, the spokesman said. Officials are working with the state Department of Health on the timetable to wind down its operations, a spokesman said. The hospital said it will end behavioral health care, but continue to operate its outpatient centers for cancer care and HIV-AIDS treatment.
St. Vincent's is one of the city's oldest hospitals and was esteemed for its emergency care.
