Spanish Catholic Center - Poor Care?

A lawsuit has been filed against two medical clinics run by Catholic Charities in the Archdiocese of Washington DC. This lawsuit was filed by Charles Briggs, the staff doctor from March 2008 till Oct. 2010, when according to the Washington comPost, he was fired. You can read about it here.

The Archdiocese sent out an email the following day (Thursday, April 9th) refuting the allegations.

Linked to his email was a letter to the Washington comPost by the Director of the Spanish Center.

In addition, a letter was sent out by Bishop Knestout regarding this and other stories in the Washington comPost.

To be honest, I don't have all of the facts on this one, although the Washington comPost is no friend of the Catholic Church.

A long time ago, I advocated that we should close this center and reallocate the funds towards education. If these allegations are true, maybe this would be a good time to shut it down and reallocate the funds to education.
