We Need Help
Lew Simon rarely curses, so this calls our attention in his recent letter, to the untimely closing of Peninsula Hospital. I emphatically agree with him: there’s no question that funds were quickly and quietly diverted, but to whom and why are presently unknown. What is known is that Rockaway’s medical needs are now severely underserved on a daily basis and more ominously, should any widespread emergency occur – one hospital will not be enough. Investigate and prosecute those acting in privacy or stealth against public interest.
