SUNY Postpones LICH Layoffs

According to Brooklyn News 12, SUNY Downstate Medical Center has postponed the previously announced layoffs, to have been effective today, of 500 staff members at Long Island College Hospital. The News 12 story doesn’t give a date to which the layoffs have been postponed, but quotes “SUNY officials” as saying they intend to take “steps that are needed to align staffing levels with the greatly reduced patient volume and limited services available at the facility.”
