East St. Louis community hopes to save hospital
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 21, 2008
Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation, which owns Kenneth Hall Regional Hospital in East St. Louis, wants to merge the hospital with another it owns in Centreville five miles away, Touchette Regional Hospital. At a time when the community is already beset by poverty and violence, closing the only access to healthcare seems like certain death for the neighborhood, according to advocates who are rallying to keep Kenneth Hall open.
