4 arrested at hospital protest
Four people were arrested while protesting at the University of Chicago Hospital today.
They were demonstrating over the lack of an adult trauma-care center in the neighborhood.
Demonstrators say the new $700 million dollar hospital ignores the needs of residents in the area, namely victims of gun violence.
The U of C Children’s Comer Hospital does have a trauma center but only takes children up to age 15.
One woman said her son, shot just blocks away from the university, died on the way to a hospital ten miles away.
