Help Save Mary Immaculate Hospital...


Help us save our community hospital. Mary Immaculate Hospital is a safety-net hospital in desperate need of its own safety net. The void that would follow its demise would threaten Queens' entire health care system and as foretold lend a heavy blow to New York City's economy.

Rallied by a new sense of urgency, we are asking community leaders and local residents from diverse businesses and institutions, to assist us in a resuscitation plan.

In 2008 the admissions for MIH were approximately 8,200; behavior health services 1,900; emergency room visits 42,450; and outpatient visits amounting to 65,000, indicates the value and necessity of a community hospital's existence in Jamaica, Queens.

The closing of Mary Immaculate Hospital would be devastating to its community. Mary Immaculate is a level-one trauma center and provides inpatient behavioral health (Psych and Detox) services and cancer care, which are much needed in the community. If Mary Immaculate Hospital closes, "Who will answer the red trauma phone at 3 a.m.?

80 new beds at New York Hospital Queens will not save the lives of trauma patients in South Jamaica? You and your loved ones will be subject to a probable death on the Van Wyck Expressway and Grand Central Parkway. Fight back!

You proved with President Obama that you have a voice, you DO count and you DO vote. WE NEED YOU!!
