Picking up the pieces of St. Vincent’s — well, one
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held last Wednesday for the Beth Israel Comprehensive Cancer Center, at 325 W. 15th St. In photo at left were two major trustees of Continuum Health Partners, Inc., Beth Israel’s umbrella health network, Lawrence Huntington, chairperson of Continuum’s board of trustees, left, and Morton Hyman, Continuum’s former board chairperson. In photo at right, were Dr. Harris Nagler, president of Beth Israel Medical Center, left, and Donna Park, vice president and executive director of the Beth Israel Comprehensive Cancer Center. Beth Israel recently bought the facility from the former St. Vincent’s Hospital, which closed three months ago. The same company that was operating the outpatient center before is continuing to do so, with Beth Israel now having oversight.
