A New Jersey Hospital Announces L&D Closure

Lourdes Hospital in southern New Jersey has announced that it is closing its L&D unit.

(Click here to read story).

The closure announcement starts to sound like a broken record. “They can no longer absorb the financial losses from low reimbursements!”

The state of New Jersey is concerned that more hospitals in the state are on shaky ground and could follow Lourdes’ lead and also shutter L&D.

Folks, we have to find a better model.
