Delia Farquharson started this petition to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and

Montefiore Mount Vernon hospital is the only hospital in the city of Mount Vernon, New York, and serves an underrepresented, underserved community of more than 100,000, primarily people of color.

With high incidence of heart disease and other chronic conditions, as well as high rates of asthma, and some of the highest pediatric incidences of asthma, it is  socially unjust, and environmentally racist to take the only a hospital out of this community. The need is for a full service, properly staffed, inpatient medical facility that will meet or exceed the needs of the city. 

Mount Vernon already has two urgent care facilities, a comprehensive neighborhood health center and a full service medical practice. Another ambulatory center is not what is needed to properly care for this community. We need a full service inpatient hospital.

WE MUST FIGHT TO KEEP OUR HOSPITAL OPEN AND IMPROVE THE SERVICE. Sign this petition and spread the word.  Let us send a clear message, keep  Mount Vernon Hospital open.
