No go for urgent care center at St. Vincent’s

Crain's New York Business, August 27, 2010

The impasse that blocked a new urgent care center serving the neighborhood around St. Vincent's Hospital has been broken by leaving bankrupt Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Centers out of the equation.

Restrictions placed by SVCMC held up the urgent care center, which the North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System originally had hoped would open next week. But SVCMC wanted to hold the health center to Catholic directives on birth control, and tried to negotiate a high rent and rigorous lease terms for space in the former emergency department.
