New York's St. Vincent's Hospital Pulls the Plug


After a long struggle to stay alive despite a crushing $700 million debt, New York's St. Vincent's Hospitalpulled the plug on itself on Tuesday, April 6. Though an exact date was not given for the closing, it appears the end will come soon. On Friday ambulances stopped taking patients to the hospital (except for psychiatric issues) and on April 14 elective surgeries will cease. What will this mean for the hospital's Greenwich Village neighborhood?
