The impending closure of Westlake Hospital was announced late Friday by the village of Melrose Park. Dr. Eric Whitaker, vice chair and principal of Los Angeles-based Pipeline, called Mayor Ron Serpico and two state representatives late Friday to share the news, Melrose Park spokesman Andrew Mack said.
Mack did not provide details shared during the conversations with Serpico and Democratic State Reps. Kathleen Willis of Northlake and Emanuel Chris Welch of Westchester, who is also a member of the hospital’s Board of Trustees. Pipeline wasn’t immediately available for comment.
