    According to local NYC news reports allot of Bellevue is open again, but mainly the clinics and outpatient services. It may not be until January 2013 or afterwards before full services such as inpatient, CCU, ORs and so forth are restored.

    NYU-Langone is another matter entirely. From what one is hearing it could be well into early Spring of 2013 or even later before they are back fully online.

    On another note was wondering the other day when down that way (East 15th Street and Second Avenue) what became or would be come of the nursing staff from NYU-Langone, Bellevue, Coney Island and the other fully or partially closed hospitals.

    Am willing to be December 2012 and probably June 2013 new grads may be in for a rough hiring season, well rougher than it already is in NYC.

    Well had NYS and NYC not sold Saint Vinny's off to real estate developers there would have been another hospital below 34th Street and on the Westside to step in. However will caution one does not know if Saint Vincent's had back up generators and or would have been open as well since most of GV was in the dark.
