Hahnemann Updates, Closing Schedule; Noose Found at Home Depot; Phillies Brotherly Love
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 07/19/19 4:21 am | updated: 07/19/19 4:21 am
Hahnemann University Hospital has announced a timeline of dates for the closure of departments and facilities with the final date set as September 6th. The schedule has to be approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Philadelphia Health Commissioner's Office. The hospital's owners, Philadelphia Academic Health System, announced last month that it would close the 171-year-old institution due to financial constraints. PAHS declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy last week. They also own St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, which is now up for sale. Einstein, Jefferson, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Temple Hospitals are exploring the purchase of the 143-year-old pediatric hospital. Drexel University sent out a letter on Thursday informing the medical college that 40% of the physicians and clinical staff would be eliminated because of the hospital's closure. Drexel signed an academic agreement with Tower Health and is planning on transferring it's residency and fellowship programs there. Tower Health will be able to offer positions to 60% of DUP staff. They operate six hospitals in the region including Reading Hospital, Brandywine Hospital, Chestnut Hill Hospital, Jennersville Hospital, Phoenixville Hospital, and Pottstown Hospital.

Last Friday, 7/12, two customers shopping at at Home Depot store in Wilmington, Delaware, discovered a noose that had been tied at the end of a spool of large rope. The two sisters, who are African American, were at the store on the 3000 block of Miller Road when they discovered the knot tied on the end of a piece of rope hanging in the aisle. Lisa and Lyonni Flowers were outraged and alerted store management who eventually came and cut it down. Home Depot says the company is "appalled and disturbed by the incident, and has notified law enforcement." On Wednesday, 7/17, a man contacted Delaware State Police to say that he was a customer at Home Depot and was the one that tied the knot. He told police that he is building a canopy for a client who requested different types of "rope knots" as decorations. He said he tied the knot at Home Depot while shopping for ropes for the project and had no racial motive. Some community activists don't believe his story and want the man identified and charged with a hate crime. The sister's don't like the way they were treated in the store and want an apology.

A young group of Phillies fans showed us what Brotherly Love is all about during Wednesday night/Thursday morning's long rain delayed loss to the Dodgers. In the top of the fifth inning, Dodger infielder David Freese hit a foul ball into the stands down the first base line. A few kids went running after it through the rows of empty seats. One boy, Jayden, got to the ball just before another boy, Frankie, and scooped it up. As they were walking back to their seats, Jayden unselfishly handed over the prize to Frankie. The two boys then had a hug and sat down. They were complete strangers, but now definitely friends. The Phillies organization sure noticed. In the 7th inning, roving broadcaster Gregg Murphy caught up with the two in their seats and handed Jayden a ball of his own. Murph also had a third ball that he gave to Jayden who then gave it to another boy.
