There’s been another sewage problem at Venice Regional Bayfront Health. Bayfront VO.mp3

Over the weekend, three toilets overflowed in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. That forced hospital officials to order the evacuation of a few patients and close off part of the unit. That information was in an email sent to staff Monday and obtained by the Herald-Tribune. In it, Venice Bayfront’s Chief of Staff, Dr. Issam Halaby, says he’s organizing a petition drive aimed at Community Health Systems, to pressure them into building a new facility. CHS, which bought the facility last year, says that’s not in their plans. They’re set aside over$4-million for infrastructure improvements in the building, which dates back to 1955.
