SUNY orders LICH closure again in court
NEW YORK - The State University of New York has voted, once again, to close Long Island College Hospital, citing financial difficulties. The vote took place Tuesday afternoon at Purchase College, 30 miles north of the Cobble Hill hospital, after a Brooklyn judge ruled last week that SUNY's Board of Trustees had to hold a public meeting on the closure to comply with the Open Meetings Law. "The Board of Trustees today took the difficult but necessary step of supporting the decision to close Long Island College Hospital," SUNY said in a press release.
