Rebecca Letz for The New York Times
St. Mary's Hospital in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, is one of three hospitals being considered for closing.
We have a big problem paying the medical bills for the millions of illegal aliens here. Our Governor doesn't seem concerned at all, but we are.
I thought Hillary was going to fix everything. I guess she lied AGAIN, miracle worker and smartest woman on the face of the earth that she is. /sarcasm
"Twelve New York hospitals have closed in the last 27 months.."
And hundreds more across the country will continue to close down as hordes upon hordes of 3rd world aliens continues the invasion of our country. Today is hospitals, tomorrow will be which institutions?
Nationally, hospitals have become more efficient in the past few years, due to less invasive surgical techniques, shorter required stays, and more out-patient surgery. Seems like New York City ought to reap the savings that others are achieving.
To help ease the pain they can sell the expensive real estate to someone who can make better use of it.
The free market has a way of bringing these things into balance.
Hillary!Care would have shut down far more, quicker, and included teaching hospitals. When elected, she flip flopped and became a champion of the NY State hospital system and nurses' unions.
For the campaign contributions.
And we wait again for Hillary to blame Republicans in the state for implementing part of her cost management strategy from Hillary!Care, "costing New Yorker's jobs, medical care and protections against future terrorist attacks." Expect the regular Charles the Schmuck newsconference on the subject.
Between indigent care costs, HMO's squeezing the hospitals, and the lawyers/malpractice insurance disaster, there isn't enough money to go round. Those factions with their hands in the trough, Trial lawyers, Medical personnel unions, Employers of illegals, Insurance companies who must respond to malpractice lawsuits, need to be brought down a notch, for the situation to improve.
On your premise that there should be excess hospital space, then it's a classic tragedy of the commons.
Why should the people of NY pay for something they don't need? If they have too many beds shut them down. I'm sure the money could be used elsewhere.
Any opinion on the importance of Brooklyn Hospital to its area? Is this place crucial, or is it another likely closure candidate?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
