Crisis That Was 2000


Crisis That Was 2000


This 48-minute documentary tells the story of the impending closure, but survival of the now successful Allen Memorial Hospital in Oberlin and the demise of the once successful multi-speciality group, the Oberlin Clinic. Excerpts from interviews of doctors, board members, city and college leaders and hospital employees, plus the descriptions by the people who put together a miracle recovery plan, are all woven together in a compelling narrative of the survival of a small town hospital at the turn of the 21st century
