Flood of red ink spells the end of Muhlenberg (NJ) Medical Center
The Star-Ledger, February 25, 2008
Faced with mounting deficits caused mainly by insufficient state aid to cover all its uninsured patients, officials at Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center in Plainfield said they will close the 130-year-old facility later this year. The Union County hospital plans to file formal papers with the state Department of Health and Senior Services on March 1 seeking the closure. If approved, programs and services will be phased out during a "wind down" period before Muhlenberg finally stops admitting patients.
