The People's Movement: Save Kenneth Hall Hospital

Interview with: Mayor Alvin Parks ( East St. Louis)

How can a city call itself fully functioning if it lacks a complete operating healthcare facility? Would you live in a city knowing that the closest hospital is miles away? Strangely enough, this is an unfortunate situation that the city of East St. Louis might have to face if the Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation gets their way and the proposal for the merge of Kenneth Hall Regional Hospital and Touchette Regional Hospital is accepted. The possibility of losing their only hospital has made the community of East St. Louis furious. But who wouldn’t be? For some folks, this merge could mean life or death.
