Preview of Hospital Closings

Here’s a first glimpse at what the Berger Commission on hospital closings may recommend.

The Sun reported today that the commission may aim to close six out of NYC’s 59 hospitals, according to a commissioner member.

“The six hospitals slated for closure are, in Manhattan, St. Vincent’s Midtown Hospital, Cabrini Medical Center, and Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital; Victory Memorial Hospital in Brooklyn; New York Westchester Square Medical Center in the Bronx, and the Parkway Hospital in Queens, a member of the commission told the Sun.”

The commission’s recommendations are expected to be made public later this year. If anyone knows about any others that are going to wind up on the list, we’d love to hear about them.
