St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan gets loans for a four-week reprieve

New York Times, February 4, 2010

The financially ailing St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan in Greenwich Village got a month's reprieve when New York Gov. David A. Paterson met with hospital officials, elected officials, and others to try to keep the hospital from closing. The governor said that he expected to be able to keep the hospital afloat for the next four weeks through a combination of state loans and help from its creditors. Paterson said he was forming a task force to look at how to run the hospital more efficiently and to examine the healthcare needs of the surrounding community and how they might best be delivered, the New York Times reports.
