SHANDS AGH CLOSING
At a special meeting Monday night, members of the medical community and the public voiced their opinion on the closing.
The emotions were certainly out at Monday's meeting sponsored by the African American Accountability Alliance and the Action Network. Many of the people who were connected to Shands AGH for many years took the opportunity to voice their opinion. And they weren't happy.
"The closing of AGH is like a closing someone that you know its a personal thing," said Shirley Green, a nurse, who worked at Shands AGH for over a decade.
A lot of people were born in this hospital and after 80 years of operation for most of the people present at the Passage Family Church, it was hard to accept that the facility will be shutting down because of budget cuts and the economic crisis.
