Roosevelt, Beth Israel Will Accommodate St. Vincent's Patients

Online today at the New York Times website:

Two private hospitals, Roosevelt, at 59th Street and 10th Avenue, and Beth Israel Medical Center at First Avenue and 16th Street, will increase the staff in their emergency rooms to accommodate patients who would have gone to St. Vincent's, said Jim Mandler, a spokesman for Continuum Health Partners, which runs the hospitals.

The article also reports that local politicians are urging St. Vincent's to stay open in some form as a urgent care facility. The shutdown is expected to take two to four months.
