    Thank you LICH nurses, staff & physicians. Now we can look forward to rebuilding the rest of LICH services. YOU did that. Communities owe a debt of gratitude. Would be a good start by making a donation to the physician’s legal fund to help pay for some of the legal actions that saved LICH.

    Just proves -fight for what is right. Amazing. There should be a block party outside of LICH on Mon. to celebrate. Patients for LICH will be there. To all who didn’t believe us that it could be done-we didn’t listen to you!

    SUNY will do anything it has to do to stall this so it won’t have to pay doctors or bring back services on their (our) dime. Be prepared to hear the lies about not being able to reopen services because they “don’t have enough doctors”. Meanwhile they put the doctors out so they could close the services & now won’t let the doctors come back so they can keep the services closed. Just remember SUNY lies & the fight is not over till we have a new operator.
