WNYC Is Looking For Help To Crack a Case of Albany Corruption

The $3 Million Mystery Medical Care Center

The WNYC reporters John Keefe and Andrea Bernstein are asking for the public's help to identify a medical care center in New York City, which has received $3 million in taxpayer money, but, which, according to the Moreland Commission's report on corruption, has few, if any, patients.

One may recall that the urgent care center operated by North Shore-LIJ/Lenox Hill Hospital in Chelsea was supposed to have received taxpayer money. But according to YELP, that urgent care center appears to now be closed.

Could this be the mysterious facility that has received millions in taxpayer money in exchange for providing nonexistent medical care services to the community ?

Stay tuned.

Intentionally Deceptive Advertising ?

Another urgent care center, which North Shore-LIJ/Lenox Hill Hospital plan to operate near the $1 billion Rudin luxury condominium complex, is now being labeled as a "hospital," even though it does not have the facilities, medical specializations, or certifications to treat heart attack patients, according to New York City EMS Chief Abdo Nahmod.
