Eminent Domain Hahnemann University Hospital NOW!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

The real estate speculators responsible for shutting down Hahnemann University Hospital are playing hardball with the city as the Mayor’s Office negotiates terms to re-open the hospital to treat the sick during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This cynical criminal profiteering will directly result in the deaths of thousands of our friends, family, neighbors and coworkers. This city has never shied away from using eminent domain in the interests of the rich and powerful.

We demand that we use it now in the interests of the city’s working class families who are facing both illness from the pandemic and economic devastation.

We are running out of time. All options must be pursued immediately.

Mayor Kenney and Philadelphia City Council: Pass emergency legislation to eminent domain Hahnemann University Hospital NOW! And demand that Governor Wolf initiate the seizure of Hahnemann University Hospital using the authority of the statewide emergency!

After the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us, Hahnemann University Hospital must be kept open and run as a public city hospital, funded through taxes on the top 3% of corporations in Philadelphia.
