NYS Senator Daniel Squadron issued this statement this afternoon regarding the SUNY Board of Trustees vote to close Long Island College Hospital:
“SUNY again demonstrated a disturbing lack of transparency, holding its vote on the future of LICH in Westchester today.
But we still made our voices heard — for our community and for Brooklyn.
LICH remains open — and our fight continues. It is clear that closing LICH makes no sense. DOH can and must ensure that the needs of our community and all of Brooklyn are met.”
