Contraception an issue in debate over use of bankrupt New York Catholic hospital
August 20, 2010
The North Shore/Long Island Jewish Medical Center hopes to open a clinic In Greenwich Village, and has sought to use a part of St. Vincent’s Hospital, which is now closed. But administrators of the bankrupt Catholic hospital are asking the new group to abide by Catholic moral principles, sources say. The negotiations have also failed to resolve differences over an appropriate payment for the use of the facility.
