"Today, January 29, 2009, at 2:00pm, Queens Borough President Helen Marshall will have another meeting at Borough Hall at the request of Senator Malcolm Smith to discuss the imminent healthcare crisis in Queens. The Senator plans to present his restructuring plan at that time.
The deal to be presented at the meeting today is not a good deal for the hospitals. The sponsors are the same as the ones for Dr. Robert Aquino at the failed Parkway Hospital and will not be a sustainable or ethical solution."
Malcolm Smith is in bed with Caritas. Oh, and Tony Avella, who has taken the lead on getting the City's attention on the issue, has not been invited to the meeting. Is this really the time for petty politics, Helen & Malcolm?
