Sidney Silverman:
Campus plans.

87th national convention in

Silverman vowed to imple-
ment a ZOA pilot program
that helps college students
respond to Arab propaganda
on campus and to speed a
reorganization of ZOA.
"They gave me a job and I
couldn't walk away from it,"
Silverman said of Sunday's
election. "The (ZOA) past
presidents really ganged up
on me and the other four
candidates backed away and
left me alone out there."
A past president of the
Detroit District of ZOA and
a national vice president and
chairma.n of the ad-
ministrative board, Silver-
man does not intend to be
alone for long. He plans to
involve more young people
in the ZOA — "a goal of all
Jewish organizations" — and
push reorganization, he said.
As an example, he pointed

hospitals will decide
in the next few weeks
whether to appeal to the In-
gham County Circuit Court
a second denial from the
state Certificate of Need
Board for a 220-bed hospital
at Maple and Drake roads.
Sinai and Ford proposed
the joint facility in 1983, but
plans were put on hold when
the state board denied the
required certificate the
following year and also
turned down certificates for
six other hospitals.
A hearing officer last mon-
th recommended that the
state uphold its decision to
reject each of the seven in-
dividual requests for more
hospital beds. But the cer-
tificate of need board au-
thorized 112 beds for Pontiac
Osteopathic Hospital, leav-
ing the other six health care
institutions options to laun-

ch another round of appeals.
The hospitals have until
the end of December to ap-
peal the board's decision
that would allow Pontiac
Osteopathic Hospital to
move 112 beds from its 308-
bed facility in Pontiac to a
planned building in In-
dependence Township.
"We will continue to pur-
sue plans with Ford to see if
we can get another cer-
tificate of need," Sinai Ad-
ministrator Robert
Steinberg said.
Meanwhile, Sinai and
Ford officials are drafting a
letter of intent about the
proposed merger of the two
institutions' business opera-
tions. The contents of the
letter are expected to be
disclosed during Sinai's
board of trustees meeting on
Monday, Steinberg said.
A Sinai executive com-
mittee has been negotiating
with Ford officials during
the past three months to
discuss possible affilia-
