Nearby hospitals to fill gap when St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan closes

New York Times, April 8, 2010

A day after St. Vincent's Hospital announced it was closing its inpatient facilities, other Manhattan hospitals said that they were making plans to accommodate its patients, doctors, and employees at their own institutions. Local politicians also said that they would press for St. Vincent's to remain open at least as an urgent care facility, which would assume some of the hospital's emergency room functions. But some doctors at the hospital expressed doubt that such a facility would be a legitimate replacement for a hospital emergency room, the New York Times reports.
