In a HEALTH CRISIS how long it takes to get to an emergency room is a matter of LIFE AND DEATH. We need a hospital with a trauma 1 emergency room to replace St Vincent's in Greenwich Village on the West Side of Manhattan. Now there is no hospital or authentic emergency room to treat over a million people who live/work on the West Side in a critical health crisis. Urgent Care, no matter how fancy, can NOT by law, treat critical health emergencies: HEART ATTACK, STROKE, child CHOKING, etc.

DON"T BE FOOLED: the slick five panel mailing sent to West Side residents is a PR ASTROTURF campaign: Meaning what it says lies. There will be no new hospital and the emergency services will NOT treat the most serious life and death conditions . What this Comprehensive Care center actiually is one more VERY COSTLY to the tax-payer URGENT "boo boo" Center.
