Chicago hospital being shuttered

Chicago Tribune, October 16, 2008

Unable to find a buyer, Chicago-based Lincoln Park Hospital is closing its doors. On October 15, Lincoln stopped admitting new patients, closed its emergency room, and alerted ambulance companies and fire departments that it was shutting down operations, Chief Executive Michael Curran said. The hospital is caring for its remaining 37 patients until they can be discharged or transferred. Curran said he didn't know how long it would take before all existing patients are discharged or transferred.
