Not Impressed With NYC's Hospital Infrastructure

Posted: Updated:


I partnered with Dr. David Kaufman of the Coalition for a New Village Hospital to piggyback on the recent Obama/McKayla meme in an effort to draw attention to the lack of hospitals on the Lower West Side of Manhattan. The recent challenges the community saw during Hurricane Sandy when several hospitals were evacuated during the storm underscored how deeply St. Vincent's Hospital, a level 1 trauma center equipped to deal with natural disasters is missed. #notimpressed #stvincents #coalitionforanewvillagehospital #healthcarevote2013
