Statement from SUNY Spokesman David Doyle on LICH

May 5, 2014

“Following good faith negotiations over the last thirty days, The State University of New York is unable to execute a satisfactory contract agreement with Brooklyn Health Partners. SUNY remains unwavering in its commitment to protecting community health care services and a viable long-term solution for Long Island College Hospital. Therefore, SUNY is moving forward with the second-highest scoring proposal, consistent with the Request for Proposal and the court-ordered settlement.”
