Fate of Brooklyn hospital in SUNY board's hands
The board that oversees the State University of New York system is meeting Friday morning to decide the fate of the Long Island College Hospital, commonly known as LICH. SUNY acquired the financially troubled hospital in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, in 2010, hoping it would be a beneficial partner to SUNY's Downstate teaching hospital in East Flatbush. But on Thursday, Dr. John Williams, the president of the SUNY Downstate hospital system, formally recommended to the university board that LICH be closed. He said both hospitals have continued to lose money, especially LICH.
