Notice from the Office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton
Re: D.C. General Hospital is a D.C. Issue and Is Not Before the Congress

We recognize that member's offices have been receiving requests for meetings and visits concerning D.C. General Hospital. In addition, tomorrow, May 10th, a mass march and lobby day have been scheduled. There may be more such activity in the weeks ahead. 

Many of the participants in these events and concerned D.C. residents, and many residents do not want to see inpatient care transferred from D.C. General. However, of the many groups who have come to Congresswoman Norton's office, the majority of the participants have been followers of Lyndon LaRouche and the publicity and events are being coordinated by LaRouche and the Schiller Institute, a LaRouche front. (Staff can contact Julia Hudson, Congresswoman Norton's AA, if they would like to see some of the literature that is being distributed.)

Press reports have left the impression that D.C. General will be considered by the Congress is the form of a $21 million “supplemental” passed by the Council or in some other form. There is no D.C. General supplemental before the Congress. We are informed by the appropriations committee that none will be submitted or considered. In addition, the contract for the new health care system in the District, which has already been approved, is not subject to approval by the Congress.

Further meetings on a matter that has already been resolved have usually resulted in frustration, venting and even shouting.

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Congresswoman Norton's office at x58050.

We regret the inconvenience many Members have reported to us concerning D.C. General Hospital. Thank you for your attention.
