Birth Dearth at LICH

Long Island College Hospital is in the midst of a precipitous drop in births this year, months after threatening to shut its maternity ward, a decline that is resulting in large increases in deliveries at other Brooklyn hospitals, including a record number of births in 48 hours at one medical center.

Last year, Continuum Health Partners, the hospital consortium that manages LICH, tried to shut down its obstetrics and pediatrics practices, citing high cost of malpractice insurance and low reimbursement levels. However, the State Department of Health denied Continuum’s application to close those departments, citing, among other things, the lack of capacity to handle patient overflow at other Brooklyn hospitals. Now those hospitals are, in some instances, being overwhelmed with additional deliveries, despite several LICH obstetricians having transferred their practices to one of them, Methodist Hospital in Park Slope.
