North Shore/Long Island Jewish Medical Center, which received a $9 million state grant for a clinic in the neighborhood, is interested in opening it in the emergency room of the bankrupt and closed St. Vincent’s Hospital, which was run by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. However, officials from St. Vincent’s insist the new clinic adhere to Catholic principles, including not counseling patients about birth control.
