Rally to Save Charity Hospital
by UniversalHealthcare Wednesday, Mar. 15, 2006 at 7:09 PM

On March 25, 2006, at 2 p.m., community members, doctors, residents, medical students, nurses, hospital employees, politicians, and political activists will be meeting outside of New Orleans’ Charity Hospital to protest the closure of this esteemed public institution. Considered the oldest continuously running public hospital in the country, Charity has cared for thousands of members of the New Orleans community for two centuries. These New Orleans residents are now largely without access to healthcare and have been forced to rely entirely on understaffed emergency rooms for basic health needs, such as monthly prescriptions and routine medical complaints. This shift has caused a healthcare catastrophe in the New Orleans metropolitan area and will be the focus of this rally, along with a discussion of the future of Charity Hospital and the fate of this city’s uninsured.
