The fight to save Mercy, and the future of safety net hospitals

Mercy Hospital was saved, but what was lost?

After a year on the chopping block, Mercy Hospital was saved from closure at the eleventh hour. But even then, patients, staff and community members say the win did not come without substantial loss.

Reset hears from a former patient and activist who worked to save the hospital, a former Mercy cardiologist and a WBEZ reporter who followed the story for more than a year.
