Nurses Halt LICH Emergency Room Conversion

Posted

*Update*

Stick a fork in it, it's done!

In yet another twist to the strange and ongoing saga of LICH New York University Hospital (NYU) has pulled out of the deal to convert part of the former campus to a stand alone ER. This change came abruptly yesterday after a judge ordered NYU to become directly part of the lawsuit brought by former LICH nurses regarding employment at the new facility.

It is not clear now what will happen with what remains of Long Island College Hospital. SUNY may very well be able to walk away from this mess leaving the court and Fortis Properties (the winning bidder for the site) to sort it out on their own.

This thing is like one of those vampire movies. Just as the villagers walk away thinking they have destroyed the monster you see a hand rising up out of the ground! *LOL*
