New Jersey residents rallying to maintain services
The Star-Ledger, February 25, 2008
40 protesters who rallied to keep supportive services such as emergency care and obstetrics at Saint James Hospital in Newark, NJ. Newark United to Save Saint James, a group of hospital employees, residents and church leaders led the charge in this and four other rallies, in an effort to save this and Columbus Hospital in the city's North Ward. The two hospitals were sold in January by Cathedral Healthcare System. Catholic Health East has agreed to maintain a 24-hour satellite emergency room, prenatal clinic and mental health clinic at Saint James, but those at the most recent rally fear the services will not remain there for long and are asking for a minimum five-year agreement.
