    10/26/11 – The Hedz-Up Report covers Occupy Wall Street’s, Healthcare for the 99%, as they lead a “March Against the Health Insurance Industry.” Coverage picks up at final destination, St. Vincent’s Hospital, as local activists from the Coalition for a New Village Hospital and Hands Off St. Vincents!, prepare to greet the marchers and conduct a teach-in.

    Real estate developer Bill Rudin, has purchased the hospital property for approximately $260 million and has announced plans to build luxury condominiums. Also planned is an “urgent care center,” which activists argue will leave the area without an adequately equipped full-fledged hospital.
