Brooklyn Hospital Tries to Stay in LICH Fray with Expanded Proposal

The Eagle reports that Brooklyn Hospital (photo) has amended its earlier proposal for the Long Island College Hospital site. The Eagle story quotes Brooklyn Hospital’s press release:

The revised proposal supports community health care needs by providing emergency services, primary and specialized ambulatory services, and urgent care services. The Brooklyn Hospital Center will draw upon its collaborative relationships with key healthcare unions to preserve the jobs of LICH employees. The proposal also includes the development of much-needed affordable housing.

The story also notes that the SUNY board has yet to recognize the Brooklyn Hospital proposal.

SUNY officials at the meeting basically said they weren’t considering the TBHC proposal on procedural groups [sic; should be "grounds"], only the NYU/Fortis/Lutheran proposal.

The inclusion of an emergency room in the new Brooklyn Hospital proposal is evidently to match the scope of facilities that would be provided under the Fortis/NYU Langone/Lutheran proposal.
