BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Elected officials and community groups rallied to save Interfaith Medical Center today from closure.

Those protesting the closure of the cash-strapped Bed-Stuy hospital said that it served 11,000 patients last year along with 250,000 out-patients visits.

“Year after year, people enter this hospital with the faith that they will be healed and Interfaith must continue to do that throughout the days in the years to come,” said state Senator and borough president candidate Eric Adams.

The hospital employs more than 1,500 full-time employees.

A final closure date is set for Nov. 14.
