Hospitals and Subways

Is it just me or is it a little ridiculous for the NYU Joint Hospital to have a sign on a subway stop at First Avenue and 14th St... when that subway station doesn't have ANY handicapped access?

How exactly are the patients supposed to utilize that facility from the subway if they can't climb stairs?

Or that almost none of the subway stations in New York City have Automated External Defibrillators? And EMS personnel dread those calls to the subways. They have to lug three bags of equipment down to the subway when called to a cardiac arrest or medical emergency in the subway.

But far be it from me to comment... I am just a new to New York kinda guy.
