Brooklyn: Interfaith Hospital Closure Plan Delayed Until September

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA financially struggling Brooklyn hospital is getting a short reprieve.

Interfaith Hospital’s closure plan was scheduled to be put into place today.

However, the city Public Advocate’s office says that has now been pushed back to September 11 at the earliest.

It comes after after supporters argued in federal bankruptcy court that the state approved the closure plan without proper oversight.

Operators have said the Bedford-Stuyvesant facility does not have the finances to continue.

Supporters are pushing to keep it open, saying neighboring communities will suffer greatly.
