Sarandon Fights Hospital Expansion. Next up: Orphanages
The outspoken New York greenie, along with longtime companion Tim Robbins, has recently expressed concern with the expansion plans of Greenwich Village’s St. Vincent’s Hospital. The couple have a home in the area and are concerned with the impact that development will have on the neighborhood. That’s right, she’s now fighting sick people.
The couple lives just three blocks away from the proposed structure. While she admits that changes need to be made at the facility, she is asking the planners to consider some proposed alternatives. Let’s hope that the family’s health insurance covers emergency room visits at other hospitals.
While we New Yorkers are always concerned with the perils of expansion (not to mention collapsing cranes), we might want to look at something like NYU’s attempted urban domination before going after hospitals.
