CB3 is Looking For Feedback on Beth Israel Downsizing

Beth Israel Hospital.

Beth Israel Hospital.

Coming up on Thursday, Community Board 3’s health and human services committee will be holding a forum on the downsizing of Beth Israel Hospital. Here’s the board’s meeting notice:

Beth Israel Hospital has already closed its labor and delivery department. Other medical services are also being moved uptown. In a few years, the full service hospital at First Avenue and 16th Street will be completely closed. What medical services does Mount Sinai need to continue to provide in our community?

We need to tell Mount Sinai now. CB3 needs community input to understand your needs as we work in influence the restructuring plans of the Mount Sinai Health System.

Come tell CB 3 what is important for your family and friends.

In 2016, the Mount Sinai Health System announced it would close Beth Israel and build a much smaller facility at 14th Street and Second Avenue.

The upcoming meeting will be held at the Sirovich Senior Center, 331 East 12th St. It begins at 6:30 p.m.
