East St. Louis hospital trims emergency services
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 22, 2008
Starting Feb. 1, 2008, Kenneth Hall Regional Hospital in East St. Louis will no longer treat patients with the most serious injuries. Instead, the hospital will direct those patients to trauma hospitals in St. Louis, and the move will save the nonprofit foundation that owns the hospital $1.5 million a year. The emergency room at Kenneth Hall will continue to treat less critical patients, said hospital representatives.
