July 1, 2014

Brooklyn – The State University of New York today announced it has signed a contract with Fortis Property Group for the sale of the former Long Island College Hospital (LICH) complex. This is the next step in the transaction and continues SUNY’s commitment to ensuring a long term healthcare solution for the community.

“We look forward to completing the sale of the LICH complex and this is an important step forward as all parties work to ensure SUNY can responsibly exit the property while vital healthcare services will continue to be available to the Brooklyn community,” said SUNY Assistant Vice Chancellor for Communications David Doyle.

The New York State Attorney General’s Office and the Office of the State Comptroller must now review and approve the contract in accordance with state regulations.
