D.C. files tax lien against SW facility

By Washington Post editors

D.C. officials have filed tax liens of more than $500,000 against Specialty Hospital of Washington-Hadley, a long-term care facility in Southwest Washington, The Washington Times reports.

The facility is operated by the same company that owns the troubled United Medical Center, the only hospital east of the Anacostia River. The city says that the hospital owes millions in unpaid electrical bills, taxes and payments to employee retirement plans and that it has been losing about $1 million a month.

Specialty Hospital's chairman says the liens are a "pattern of harassment" related to the city's dealings with United, the former Greater Southeast Community Hospital.

Soon as he pays his 2004 taxes, Marion Barry will get rid of that pesky lien.

Sure the long term facility may be in turmoil and unable to pay its bills and employee retirement benefits; who cares, who is the city charging in the continuing domestic abuse at the home of Mayor Fenty?

Judgewright1, what are you talking about? What's the deal with these domestic violence accusations?

People keep saying that Fenty abuses his wife. Is that MPD really that crooked that Lanier would cover something like this? This is the best kept secret in DC. When is someone going to break this story?
