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

    The ruling by Common Pleas Court Judge M. Teresa Sarmina was the answered prayer that Dwayne Thorpe, 34, and his family had been seeking for years, while it was the latest blow to Detective James Pitts, who for years has been accused in lawsuits, court filings, and police Internal Affairs reports of using heavy-handed interrogation methods to coerce statements from suspects and witnesses.

North Philly was promised an addiction crisis center — but never got it

DBHIDS used to operate an additional behavioral assessment center in the Girard Medical Center complex at Eighth and Girard, but it closed in the fall of 2016. That left two behavioral assessment centers remaining in North Philadelphia.

    North Philly was promised an addiction crisis center - but never got it
    It's been six months since the city's Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services announced it would build a brand new emergency facility in North Philadelphia to help people with substance use disorder become stabilized and access treatment. The center, which would provide 24-hour walk-in services for drug users in crisis, still isn't open, and DBHIDS is avoiding questions.
