A hospital in Harlem is studying its future

New York Times, February 26, 2010

Like St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan, North General hospital in Harlem is trying to restructure itself to avoid closing and has reached out to potential partners and New York state for money to keep going, industry officials said. Its closing could be a boon for hospitals on the borders of Harlem: Although North General serves a large number of poor and uninsured patients, it is also perceived as a destination for middle-class Harlem residents. The industry officials said one possibility was for a rehabilitation center operated by New York City's public hospital system to take over at least part of the North General site, the New York Times reports.
