State budget leaves troubled NY hospital still looking for help

New York Daily News, March 25, 2013
Struggling SUNY Downstate Medical Center's bid for a bailout received a cold shoulder from state lawmakers and Gov. Cuomo. The state's new budget - which the Senate began adopting Sunday - contains no additional funds for the ailing Brooklyn hospital complex, despite warnings it could close without additional dollars. "It is a real crisis for Brooklyn," said Sen. Dan Squadron (D-Brooklyn). The budget agreement does call for SUNY officials to submit a restructuring plan for the hospital by June and gives officials greater flexibility to negotiate lower cost contracts.
