New York State Health Department
The rate of premature births in New York State has continued its trend of decline, according to state heath officials.
Last week, the New York State Health Department ordered the hospital to stop admitting new patients and end all surgeries for 30 days and develop a plan to transfer current patients.
The decision came after inspectors found “problems that failed to meet the accepted standards of care” with Peninsula’s clinical lab which the state said put patients at risk.
With confirmed cases of West Nile virus around the Tri-State area, health officials are concerned about the large amounts of standing water and flooding left by hurricane-turned-tropical storm Irene.
