GL Day Ender: Help Keep LICH From Going Condo

October 20th, 2008 · 3 Comments

We’ve mentioned the many troubles of the future of Cobble Hill’s troubled Long Island College Hospital. Well, the threat of overall closure of the entire facility is now a big possibility. Not only will this be a huge change in the community and area in the sense of making the hospital’s land holdings available for development, but thousands of us will be effected in the lack of a near by medical facility, which in turn will effect the patient overgrowth for the neighboring area hospitals and medical centers. (One may think what one wants of the quality of care at LICH, but it is a local hospital and, as such, needs to be there.) City Council Member Bill de Blasio’s office is asking people to show their support and sign this petition to help Save Long Island College Hospital. Take a minute to sign, whether you want a nearby hospital or don’t feel like seeing the hospital turn into a village of luxe condos.

    LICH is kind of a cruddy hospital. Could we get rid of LICH and put in a new hospital in the same building?
