[InfoPolio] Reports of the death of The Post-Polio Institute have been grossly exaggerated

Yes, The Post-Polio Institute has been closed at Englewood Hospital.

The hospital is millions in the red, lost 3% of its patients last year and has already lost another 3% this year. A hospital VP came and told me that The Post-Polio Institute was "in the red" and that I am personally financially responsible for all of the expenses of the Institute, from my assistant's and therapists' salaries to the cost of toilet paper. This is a violation of my contract that says the hospital will provide all of these things, which they had provided for the past 12 years.

I was able to raise $25,000, exactly the amount the Institute was supposedly “in the red.” But, that money is not being applied to my expenses. What's more, the hospital is trying to use International Centre for Post-Polio Education and Research grant funds to pay patient bills. Englewood Hospital is not a place that I want my patients to be, and certainly not a place that I want to be.

But, The Post-Polio Institute and The International Centre for Post-Polio Education and Research live!

I'm looking for a new location and I think I've found one. But, for now, as always, please contact me at:


if I can be of help.

Thank you for your patience, consideration and the dozens of e-mails and calls of support I've received during this time of transition.

Something's coming, something good!

Enjoy the summer,


Dr. Richard L. Bruno
International Post-Polio Task Force
