Melissa Sends Letter to the New York State Department of Health Commissioner Calling for a Public Hearing Regarding Jewish Home Lifecare (JHL’s) Possible Relocation to 97th Street

In a letter sent yesterday to the New York State Department of Health Commissioner Nirav Shah, MD, MPH, Melissa writes:

“I am writing to you on behalf of the constituents of my district, many of whom continue to be deeply concerned about a newly-purported plan by Jewish Home and Hospital (now known as Jewish Home Lifecare or JHL) to construct a residential healthcare facility on West 97th Street in Manhattan. Before being able to continue with its plans, I again call upon the State Department of Health to convene a public hearing, where residents’ concerns about the project can be heard and taken into account.”

  1. While many local, state and national elected officials are silent, mumble or equivocate, Councilmember Mark Viverito speaks and acts in an authentic, clear and persuasive manner on this and on other progressive issues. We appreciate her courage and candor and join the growing number of neighbors pursuing this just cause for those who reside within and outside the nursing home.
