WTC clinic in a bind after Congress lets Zadroga Act expire

Treating 13,000 patients a year at the World Trade Center Health Program is hard enough for Dr. Michael Crane — now he has to work under a cloud of uncertainty since part of the Zadroga Act expired.

“I don’t have much hair left anyway, and the rest of it is going to fall out,” said Crane, the director of Mt. Sinai’s clinic in Manhattan.

His center is one of seven in the New York area that lost funding on 12:01 am Thursday because a gridlocked Congress let a key part of the Zadroga Act expire.
