D.C.’s health department announced last week that the obstetrics ward at United Medical Center, the city’s only hospital East of the Anacostia River, will have to shut down temporarily for 90 days.

Where does the long-troubled hospital go now, and how will this affect resident’s access to prenatal and maternal care services?
