MOUNT VERNON, NY — July 10, 2020 — Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement on keeping the Mount Vernon Hospital open:

“This pandemic is far from over. The lack of leadership and strategic planning from the White House, coupled with reckless actions taken by governors and state leaders outside the tri-state area, have led to severe increases in COVID-19 cases across the country. New Yorkers have come together to flatten the curve, but interstate travel means the possibility for outbreaks in our area remains high. We need all hands on deck to handle this crisis, and that includes ensuring the Mount Vernon Hospital remains open and available to the community. For months we have fought to keep the hospital open, and I remain committed to seeing to it that our doctors, nurses, and frontline health care workers in Mount Vernon are available for those in need, now and long into the future. If we want to end health disparities in communities of color, we need fully operational health care facilities like this one running strong.”
