Healthcare workers, lawmakers rally to keep NY hospital open

NY1.com, July 29, 2013
Long Island College Hospital remained open past its original scheduled closing date of Sunday, and medical workers and elected officials marked the occasion with a loud protest. Workers gathered opposite of the hospital's entrance to call on Governor Andrew Cuomo to help keep the facility open. LICH was set to close on Sunday, according to the closure plan approved by the state, but a state supreme court has kept a temporary restraining order in place to keep the facility open, until legal arguments are heard on Wednesday.
