Doctors seek help from St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan

Wall Street Journal, May 7, 2010

Some doctors from St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan fear they won't be covered for malpractice insurance for care they provided while on staff before the hospital's demise. They believe the failed institution has a legal obligation to continue to provide the coverage. The doctors fear they may have to buy their own medical malpractice coverage for the next several years, policies they say can cost $40,000 a year, the Wall Street Journal reports.
