I saw an ad on TV by UPMC stating how many advances it has made and what it has done for the Pittsburgh area. This may be true, but don't tell that to the people in the UPMC Braddock area. UPMC is planning on closing the Braddock hospital. At least UPMC could wait until the hospital in Monroeville is built and operational.
The ad also said that UPMC is proud to be part of the city's past, present and future. So why is UPMC closing the Braddock hospital? Money -- if UPMC isn't making enough profit, close the hospital.
I always thought that hospitals and other services were to help the people. I guess not. I realize that these institutions need to make enough money to cover all their expenses and have enough for any future needs, but don't sacrifice this by closing hospitals and forgetting about the people.
