Costs of Uninsured Shut NY Hospital

From the New York Times:

A day after St. Vincent’s Hospital in Greenwich Village announced it was closing its inpatient facilities, other Manhattan hospitals said Wednesday that they were making plans to accommodate its patients, doctors and employees at their own institutions.

Local politicians also said that they would press for St. Vincent’s to remain open at least as an urgent care facility, which would assume some of the hospital’s emergency room functions. But some doctors at the hospital expressed doubt that such a facility would be a legitimate replacement for a hospital emergency room.
