Veterans and Officials Oppose Hospital Cuts (By Bush administration )

The way Ed Daniels figures it, if the VA Medical Center New York were to close, the effects on him could be summed up in one phrase: mass transit.

"Without that hospital," said Mr. Daniels, who said he suffered knee injuries in Vietnam, "I'd have to take a bus to get to the train to get to another bus, just to go to the next-closest hospital." snip

"Once again, the Bush administration is trying to make things harder for New Yorkers," Mr. Miller said, "and this time the people who will suffer most are those we owe the most."

Ms. Lpez sought to cast the changes as a discriminatory act, aimed at disabled veterans in Manhattan who, she said, will have a more difficult time getting medical care if they are forced to travel to another, more distant hospital. The Manhattan hospital, she said, is "ideally located" at 23rd Street and First Avenue.
