Gray, McDuffie Laud Providence Closing Delay

The closure of Providence Hospital without any concrete plans to establish the health care village it has proposed would create a health care desert in Ward 5 and eliminate convenient access to health care at Providence for residents of Wards 4, 7 and 8, according to officials and advocates who cheered the announcement this week that the hospital would remain open.
