The fight to save a South Side hospital moved to Chicago’s Loop Tuesday.

Roseland Community Hospital could stop admitting new patients as early as Wednesday.

Roseland community pastors and neighbors were bused to the Thompson Center to fight for more help keeping the hospital running.

The hospital is $7 million in debt and needs $600,000 to make payroll.

Hospital administrators say the state owes the hospital $6 million, but according to Gov. Pat Quinn, the state has given the hospital all the money it owes for the year.

A spokeswoman for the governor says state officials plan to meet with hospital leaders later in the week to talk about ways to keep Roseland open.3
