New York State awarded a $9.4 million grant to a hospital to run an urgent care center that would treat the minor emergencies of some patients displaced by the closing of St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan. The two-year grant, announced by Gov. David A. Paterson, would help Lenox Hill Hospital set up a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week center on the site of St. Vincent's until a long-term site is found. St. Vincent's, which has been phasing out operations, announced on Monday that it would finally close its emergency room at 8 a.m. on April 30.
