January 16, 2019


So far, the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York has two former hospital workers as clients, said Victoria Esposito, advocacy coordinator for the Albany-based not-for-profit group.


Esposito said she will be investigating the troubled pension fund that covers more than 1,100 workers at the former hospital, which closed in 2008 as part of a state-ordered consolidation. “Whatever relief we might obtain for our clients might also be helpful to other former employees,” she said.
