Farewell, Hahnemann Show

Aug 5, 2019

This show salutes Hahnemann University Hospital, a safety net hospital in Philadelphia, caring for uninsured and poor people in the city, which will be ceasing operations in September. Hahnemann has changed hands between various corporations, and caring for these poor people is simply not profitable. For us at Health Matters, its loss is symbolic of our lack of vision and inability to attend to the most basic needs of civilized society. We try to ease your depression with good news about Kentucky’s fatal drug overdose rates, the success of the human papilloma virus vaccine, and Kentucky’s low uninsured rate.
