America's Wire today released a story on the growing number of hospitals that are closing or moving out of minority neighborhoods, leaving huge voids in health care services, especially trauma treatment, for residents of these communities.
Award-winning reporter, Marjorie Valbrun, reports that hospitals have closed or face closure in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, St. Louis, New York, Washington and parts of New Jersey. Detroit has lost more than 1,200 hospital beds since 1998 because of closures and has no public hospital. And the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has concluded that the closures have created considerable health care gaps for residents in these communities.
"This problem has been escalating dramatically and is a consequence of a system where health care is a market commodity that is bought and sold by those who can afford it," Brian D. Smedley, vice president and director of the Health Policy Institute at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, says in the article.
