Bankrupt North Philadelphia Health System could continue running Girard Medical Center

With NHS out of the picture, the city will begin talking to what remains of North Philadelphia Health System about a sublease that would keep a remnant of that bankrupt nonprofit in charge at the 801 W. Girard Ave. facility, at least in the short term, Gladstein said.

    Bankrupt North Philadelphia Health System could continue running Girard Medical Center
    After Philadelphia's talks with NHS Human Services failed to produce a contract to run Girard Medical Center, the city said it would use the bankrupt North Philadelphia Health System to keep the facility in business. - Harold Brubaker, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
