From the Paper:

"I work in Bronx, New York at the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital center. This facility is comprised of two separate hospitals, both of which have been serving patients for around 100 years. In 1962, these two facilities merged to form one administrative unit. Its most recent major upgrade came in 1987, with $214 million spent to replace the physical plant and to create a new nursing facility. Bronx-Lebanon is currently the largest non-profit health care system in the South and Central Bronx, with 858 beds in total, over 70 medical practices, and a special nursing facility for geriatric and AIDS patients. The facility is constantly growing as well. Inpatient discharges rose by 19% between 2000 and 2005; from 25,819 to 30,754. In 2005, the facility received more than 900,000 outpatient visits, and this number is expected to continue increasing."
