From HealthCareThatWorks comes this informative new mashup, showing all of the hospitals in the city, including the ones slated for closure or reduction in services. If you look at the map, one thing is obvious:
Today, New Yorkers who live in low-income communities are less likely than ever to live near a hospital. This trend may worsen: Of the 12 hospitals currently slated for closure, downsizing, or restructuring, 8 are located in or near high-poverty communities.
The backend for the site was put together by OnNYTurf-- he's becoming the go-to guy for NYC mashups.
