Nurses say St. Luke's Hospital in danger of losing its top ER facilities
Dozens of registered nurses rallied against cuts they say would cripple emergency services at Harlem's St. Luke's Hospital. Protesters said the hospital's ER is in danger of losing its status as a Level One trauma center — and as a result, it would lose the resources to treat the the most severely wounded or injured people. "That would be devastating to this community," said Jill Furillo, executive director of the New York State Nurses Association. "Patients will die." Continuum Health Partners, which owns the hospital, is in the midst of a merger with Mt. Sinai, a move that would form one of the largest network of hospitals in the country.
