--()--Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP):

For: June 27, 2019

WHAT: The members of the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP), joined by Councilmember Helen Gym and other elected officials and labor leaders, will gather in front of City Hall to call on the state to save Hahnemann University Hospital.

WHY: The closure of Hahnemann would result in a bona fide public health emergency. The hospital’s emergency department treats more than 40,000 patients annually. This is in a city where every hospital has wait times well above the state and national averages. No Philadelphia hospital can absorb the increased volume that would follow a closure without compromising the quality of care they are able to provide.

WHERE: Philadelphia City Hall, North Apron

WHEN: Thursday, June 27, 2019, 12pm
