Over the last few weeks and months, as St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan teetered into bankruptcy, many of its 3,500 employees were laid off. But about 1,500 of them returned to the hospital building on April 30 for one last time, to say goodbye. The hospital officially shut its doors at 8 a.m. Friday when it stopped taking even walk-in emergency room patients. The last patients left in the hospital complex, built for more than 700, were 18 people in the Pax Christi Hospice, who have been allowed to remain.
