Ailing NY Downtown Hospital cuts entire residency program

DNAinfo.com, March 14, 2013
LOWER MANHATTAN -- New York Downtown Hospital has slashed its entire residency program, leaving more than 70 young doctors scrambling to find new jobs, DNAinfo.com New York has learned. The decision to shutter the doctor training program, which the hospital confirmed officially closes June 30, comes as the financially troubled hospital is about to be taken over by New York-Presbyterian. But while the takeover will rescue the only hospital below 14th Street, several upset Downtown Hospital residents said they feel like they're getting lost in the shuffle, trying to find a placement in a different hospital just months after cutting ties with their union under the mistaken belief that doing so might help them keep their jobs at Downtown Hospital.
