Caritas is claiming Chapter 11 bankruptcy today and submitting a closure plan for St. John's, Mary Immaculate, satellite clinics and a 115-bed nursing home named Monsignor Fitzpatrick. Workers have already left in significant numbers so they may all close by default earlier than expected.
Can you think of any elected official that did a damn thing during this crisis besides use cute slogans in order to get their mug on TV or in the paper? How about the ones that have shown no concern at all? What do you think about the union leaders who take way too much money out of each employee's paycheck and offered nothing in return?
Where was Mayor Bloomberg petitioning for funds from Albany to keep them open? Which elected officials will bring up this massive loss of hospital beds when Bloomberg and Burden's next plan to upzone Queens is put in front of them? (Don't hold your breath.)
Can't wait for the next Queens employment report.
VOTE THEM ALL OUT.
