Protests accompany final day for New Jersey hospital
Philadelphia Inquirer, August 14, 2008
Nearly 200 residents and local activists gathered evening at the parking lot of Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center in Plainfield, NJ, and rode away in a mock funeral procession to protest the hospital's closing. The 355-bed facility stopped accepting patients earlier this month, making it the fifth acute-care hospital to close in New Jersey this year.
