SUNY says NYU is prepping space for September move-in

Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Supporters of Long Island College Hospital (LICH) rallied outside the Cobble Hill hospital's emergency department on Thursday to express concern about SUNY shrinking what remains of the ER.

SUNY workers moved the unit into the hospital's former pediatric emergency department, a smaller space.

SUNY, which has kept the ER open as a walk-in urgent care clinic as part of its sale of LICH to developer Fortis Property Group, says it is preparing the full ER space for NYU, which will be operating a "walk-in ER" there starting in September.
