What are Ellen Stofan's plans for the nation's most visited museum?
United Medical Center, Washington’s public hospital and the only hospital east of the Anacostia River, has been at the center of controversy for months. Over the summer, its obstetrics and nursery wards were temporarily closed. And earlier this month, the D.C. Council voted against renewing the contract of the company currently managing the hospital, Veritas. Just last week, Dr. Julian Craig, UMC’s chief medical officer who spoke out against Veritas at the D.C. Council, was told his contract would not be renewed, leading to accusations that his firing is retribution for his testimony. Kojo gets an update on the latest news about UMC and how the disputes over management are affecting patient care.
