Seven Suitors For LICH?

The Daily News quotes State Senator Marty Golden as saying SUNY Downstate indicated there are seven potential buyers interested in Long Island College Hospital. SUNY won’t identify them, or confirm the number, although it does say they’re “all in the health business — not in real estate.” The News story darkly hints that this is no assurance that they might not buy LICH just to close it and flip the site to one of the developers who are “coveting LICH’s $1 billion in prime brownstone Brooklyn waterfront buildings.”

The News story also says LICH staff claim “SUNY has purposely stripped away services trying to leave the hospital barely functional.” It also says SUNY has stopped sending resident doctors to LICH, which it quotes SUNY spokesman Robert Bellafiore as confirming.
