MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After 42 years, the name of downtown Minneapolis’ major hospital is about to change.

Hennepin County Medical Center wants to change its name to Hennepin Healthcare Medical Center to better brand the large hospital and its expanding health care system.

The County Board’s health and human services committee is slated to give the name a final approval next week. The name change won’t go into effect until 2018.

  1. Change it to “Gang Violence Treatment and Free Illegal Alien Health Care”. The hospital overflows patients with the worse liberal twin cities produces.

  2. Ease up. You yourself could easily wind up there in the gunshot ward if you make the mistake of accidentally passing through downtown, or north Minneapolis; or travel on the interstate where the blm like to waylay travelers.

    Mayor Betsy promised to grow Minneapolis, and she and Dayton have sure made good on that with over 10,000 non-white, illiterate, non-English speaking, unskilled, unemployable, malcontents, terrorists, layabouts and common criminals imported to the Twin Cities each year on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, and country of origin using the guise of refugee or asiliee: They are immediately placed on multi-generational welfare and are entitled to free healthcare, free housing, EBT cards, cash payments, interpreters, childcare, legal aid, schools, and social services. For these reasons we need to further expand Obamacare here in the Welfare Village.
