Unions, community groups and state officials reached a settlement Thursday afternoon that will determine the future of Long Island College Hospital. The deal opens the door to new proposals for the long-struggling hospital and will give the community more input in choosing a developer for the site, officials said, though it was unclear if LICH would remain a full-service medical center. Attorneys for all parties involved in the lawsuit praised the settlement, reached after days of deliberation, calling it "unique" and "extraordinary."
