Should OSF-SFMC in Peoria Remain Catholic?

OSF-Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria has not allowed their own Haitian Hearts patients from returning to Saint Francis Medical Center for heart surgery. Four have died.
This is not consistent with the social justice teachings of the Church. This is not consistent with the mission philosophy of OSF.
OSF has a contraceptive policy that is not consistent with the teachings of the Church. This policy was created by OSF's Catholic bioethicist and The Catholic Diocese of Peoria to allow OSF to remain competitive in the medical market place.
Should Bishop Jenky in Peoria allow OSF to remain a Catholic hospital? Should Bishop Jenky allow these scandals to continue in his Diocese? Catholic hierarchy does not like scandal.
Bishop Olmsted in Phoenix doesn't like scandal either.
See Bishop Olmsted's ruling on Saint Joseph's Medical Center in Phoenix.
