According to Crain’s, Brooklyn Hospital has joined with a private equity investor and a real estate developer to propose taking over Long Island College Hospital and converting much of its campus to “1.000 mixed income apartments.” According to the Crain’s story, the main hospital building
…would be repurposed as a comprehensive care center with ambulance service and a freestanding emergency department open around the clock where non-critical acute illnesses or injuries would be treated. Other proposed services include radiology, laboratory and endoscopy services, outpatient surgery, an infusion center, outpatient physical therapy, and physician offices.
Crain’s says it is not clear how the state or SUNY will respond to this proposal. Brooklyn Hospital is located at 121 DeKalb Avenue in Fort Greene.
