And now we know why they shut down. A group of former St. Vincent's employees filed a lawsuit today claiming the hospital lied about their debt because higher-ups were spending millions on themselves. The hospital allegedly spent $104 million on "other" costs, including a $278,000 golf trip. Attorney Thomas D. Shanahan told NY1, "The public deserves better than to hear a hospital was 'bankrupt' under a crushing $1 billion debt, when it seems they had substantial public monies coming in and that the hospital was mismanaged." St. Vincent's hospital closed in April, citing $1 billion in debt. About 3,500 people lost their jobs.
