Another Hospital Closes L&D

I interrupt the discussion about health care and higher education comparisons, to report another. L&D. closing.

Southeast Baptist Hospital in San Antonio is closing their L&D unit effective January 1, 2010.

(Click here for news article).

A new hospital is scheduled to open (hopefully if there are no delays) .in 2011. Meanwhile, the people in the southeast community will not have an L&D unit for at least two years.

Do you believe that if L&D were a profitable service, they would close the unit?

  1. Curious as to what the folks that had been working there will be doing now? Also wondering what the midwifery situation is down there? Does anyone have ideas as to what the birthing community will be doing now?
