In Brooklyn, Long Island College Hospital staff gets reprieve

The New York Times, June 21, 2013
A state judge has ordered Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn to keep up its level of staffing after complaints by hospital workers that the State University of New York was allowing it to wither away even as officials publicly claimed they were doing everything possible to keep it open. After a hearing in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn Wednesday, the judge, Johnny Lee Baynes, signed an order saying the hospital, in Cobble Hill, should maintain staffing on par with what it was before SUNY Downstate Medical Center, which operates it, first moved to close it earlier this year.
