Another Manhattan hospital is closing its doors, this time in Harlem.

It has been just over two months since St. Vincent's Hospital closed up in Greenwich Village, and now North General Hospital is following suit.

On Monday, Governor David Paterson and North General issued a statement saying the hospital planned to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Officials say that the 200-bed hospital will shut down by next week and in its place will be an urgent care clinic.

The city's public hospital system will also move two of its facilities, a nursing home and a 200-bed long-term rehabilitation center, to the North General site from Roosevelt Island.
