      This is an outrage. A dear friend, age 84, put it this way: "How much more money do the Rudin's really need?" I have been brought to, and cared for by, Saint Vincent's ER on 3 separate occasions - most thankfully - and was also a patient of one of its staff's specialists who has since found employment out of state. I recently attended my first community board meeting - an eye-opener - and was flabbergasted as i listened to board members' concerns re: the architectural & aesthetic considerations of the Rudin project: Too surreal. My continued gratitude to those who do the truly heavy lifting. The rest of us must keep the momentum going as well. H.Z.Hendlin

      This, so called stand alone emergency room" of the Rudin Group and North Shore LIJ is , not only illegal, but will harm this community and all it's residents. If you have no other choice, which I do not believe is true, then do nothing until you can put a full service hospital and real emergency service in the place that was ST. Vincent's hospital. Any other choice by you will not get my vote if you run again for office in this government!!!!

      At the age of 81, I have been a patient at St. Vincent's - emergency and surgical. Now I have to depend on getting through heavy traffic should I need emergency care again. Operated on last year, I was transported to Beth Israel where a 4 PM surgery was completed at 2:AM. Then there was no bed to take me to. Patients were on the floor and leaning against walls in pre-op and post op. This is third country treatment. If another 9/11 occurs - God help us.

      I am a physician formerly practing at St. Vincent's for over 20 years and know the importance of a hospital at this location. I was also a patient with, now, no clear choices to seek care and no emergency room in Manhattan that is truly well functioning...if I was able to ARRIVE alive!
