Last year, Providence Hospital in northeast Washington closed its maternal care clinic, attracting criticism for limiting services in a part of the District that has higher rates of infant mortality, preterm births and babies born with lower birth weights.
In months that followed, Ascension, the health group that manages Providence, announced that the hospital will also end acute care and shift to a “health village” model focusing more on primary and specialty care.
What is a “health village” model and how will these transformations affect the community the hospital serves? Kojo gets updates from a local reporter who covered these developments, and a union organizer resisting these changes.
