Pennsylvania lawmakers pressure Temple to keep hospital open

Philadelphia Inquirer, March 27, 2009

Four Pennsylvania lawmakers who represent neighborhoods near Northeastern Hospital still hope they can keep it open. They are threatening to withhold funding to Temple University Health System, which announced this week that it will close the Philadelphia hospital July 1. Temple said it would continue using the building to provide outpatient services, including prenatal care. State Rep. John Taylor, whose district includes the hospital, called the health system's decision to close the hospital "arrogant, ill-advised, and premature."
