As previously reported here, the CEO of Continuum Health Partners, the private sector entity that owns and manages Long Island College Hospital (“LICH”), Stanley Brezenoff, and the recently appointed interim CEO of LICH, Dominick Stanzione, will meet with members of the public (all are invited) on Monday evening, September 22, at 6:30, in conference rooms A and B on the ground floor of LICH (entrance at 339 Hicks, between Atlantic Avenue and Amity Street. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss Continuum’s plans for LICH, which include eliminating the OB/GYN department (and also, possibly, pediatrics) and selling off part of the hospital’s physical plant. These proposals have not yet, and must if they are to be implemented, receive the approval of the New York State Department of Health. Substantial community opposition may have an effect on the outcome.
Reminder: LICH Community Meeting Tomorrow Evening.
