Abington Hospital doctors oppose hospital merger
More than 200 physicians affiliated with Abington Memorial Hospital met there this morning and expressed opposition to the hospital's intended partnership with Holy Redeemer Hospital, according to doctors at the meeting. Under the proposed merger, announced last week, Abington would stop performing abortions in deference to Redeemer’s Catholic moral teaching—even though hospital officials say the entity that would open in 2013 would be a secular, regional health system.
