St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan Closes

Empire members may have previously received a notice regarding the closure of certain Manhattan based services at Saint Vincents Catholic Medical Center (SVCMC). Please note that St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan, located at 153 West 11 Street, stopped providing inpatient hospital care as of April 30, 2010. Select outpatient services may still be available. 
Also, please note that St. Vincent's Hospital Westchester, St. Vincent's Home Health Care Agency, Bishop Mugavero Center For Geriatric Care, Holy Family Home, and St. Elizabeth Ann's Health Care and Rehabilitation Center are not impacted by the closure of St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan, and remain open for business.  
Due to the closure of St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan, some physicians will be required to seek admitting privileges at another hospital. We will notify impacted members in writing should these physicians fail to secure privileges at another participating hospital. Attached is a copy of a letter we recently sent to impacted members providing additional detail.
