The New York Times reports today, that SUNY will present a plan to sell Long Island College Hospital to a developer who would turn much of the property into condos. This is not a shock to anyone reading between the lines in the long SaveLICH drama.
The Cobble Hill Association’s Jeff Strabone issued this statement in reaction to today’s news:
SUNY has conducted its RFP process in total darkness: away from the public and the courts. Now they announce their unilateral decision. Not one assessment of public health needs has been done and not one consideration of disaster-prepareness. LICH is essential every day but especially in the event of another Sandy-type storm or 9/11-type event in lower Manhattan. Medical decisions should be based on need, not greed. By closing LICH as a hospital, SUNY is putting the entire region at risk of a catastrophic event. The regional network of hospitals will be overcrowded daily and overwhelmed in the event of disaster.
Reaction on Twitter:
SUNY’s proposal to sell LICH to a real estate developer is a betrayal of the community and will not stand. #SaveLICH http://t.co/rQZHcgF6ye

STOP CUOMO TOWERS. Keep LICH a hospital, not a luxury monument to Cuomo’s get-tough presidential posturing. #SaveLICH @nynurses @NYGovCuomo
