Brooklyn Hospital Bids on LICH

Latest bid would close LICH and create urgent care centers and residential units.

SUNY Downstate tabled a proposal to sell Long Island College Hospital less than one month ago, but now it appears another bid is in.

According to a report in Crain'sBrooklyn Hospital Center has drafted a plan with a private-equity firm and a developer that would close LICH and inpatient services at the site.

The main hospital site would become a "comprehensive care center" with ambulance service and a freestanding emergency department to treat non-critical acute illnesses or injuries.

Brooklyn Hospital would build and operate two clinics with primary and specialty care and two urgent care centers. 

LICH's real estate holdings would be sold with 1,000 mixed-income residential units in the plan.

If people are in need of care while this is being figured out, urgent care facilities can provide a lot of care that doctors would too. All over New York there are many facilities but I think these guys do such a good job. http://premiercare365.com/urgent-care-locations.php

This part of Brooklyn does not need a non-critical urgent care or free standing er or anything else you want to call this real estate deal. We need our hospital, LICH -- full service.
