Brooklyn: LICH Bid Winner to Maintain Full Service Hospital


LICH1There will soon be a new group in charge of Brooklyn’s Long Island College Hospital.

The non-profit Brooklyn Health Partners has won the bid to take over the cashed strapped facility in Cobble Hill.

There has been a long court battle between SUNY Downstate and various community groups over the fate of LICH.

According to the bid posted on SUNY’s website, BHP will build a 300 to 400 bed full service hospital.

Construction would begin at least two years after the current LICH is closed.
