Seems as though our representatives are right on top of this issue. Here is State Senator Squadron's statement:
Statement from State Senator Daniel Squadron on Long Island College Hospital:
"The deal to save Long Island College Hospital was a huge win for our community, Brooklyn and the state. Simply put, it must move forward. LICH has helped keep Brooklyn healthy for more than 150 years, and it must not be forced to close its doors now. I will continue to work with the governor, my colleagues in government and the hospitals as the merger moves forward."
