NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Doctors, nurses and some elected officials held a rally Thursday to try to save a cash-strapped hospital in Brooklyn.
Those in attendance outside of Long Island College Hospital in Cobble Hill chanted “Save our hospital!”
Officials said the impending closure could be imminent.
“We’ve been told to transfer all of our patients out by tomorrow,” Dr. Alice Garner, chief of neonatal medicine at LICH, told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond. “Tell us we better not make any admissions, almost like a threat — or else. Or else what?”
