The NYC Regional EMS Council denied the application of the Ezras Nashim (aka Chasdei Devorah Inc.) Organization to operate their own ambulance within Boro Park and Kensington.
Three weeks ago there was an open forum where Ezras Nashim officially requested their Certificate of Need (CON).
On Tuesday night a vote was held, and the application was denied:
- 7 voted in favor
- 12 votes against
- 5 Abstentions
- 2 absent
The chairwoman said Ezras Nashim did not have the 14 vote majority to pass it or fail it. Ezras Nashim is likely to appeal this and take this up to Albany for a fight.
