March & Rally to Keep Interfaith Medical Center Open for Care
Sat, Jun 15, 2013 at 01:00 PM
Nurses and healthcare workers care about the Bed-Stuy community and all of Central Brooklyn, and are proud of our hospital. But years of financial mismanagement have left Interfaith Medical Center (IMC) in a state of crisis. The merger between IMC and Brooklyn Hospital, which was planned to shore up IMC finances, has screeched to a halt. Without support from the state, IMC could run out of money by next month and be forced to close its doors.
Brooklyn healthcare activists will march through Bedford Stuyvesant from P.S. 3 to Interfaith Medical Center where we will hold a rally and speakout to keep this vital community hospital open for care.
March starts at P.S. 3 at the corner of Bedford Ave. & Hancock St. in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. March route will go along Fulton Street and end at Interfaith Medical Center at 1545 Atlantic Avenue.
Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 1pm, March begins from P.S. 3. Rally & Speakout at Interfaith Medical Center at 2:30pm.
Interfaith patients, New York State Nurses Association, 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, New York Communities for Change, elected leaders, and community supporters.
