SUNY Releases Summary of Submissions for Long Island College Hospital

February 4, 2014

..Albany — The State University of New York today released a summary of the five proposals it received in response to the reopened and publicly transparent process to ensure continued access to quality medical services and a 21st century health care solution for the community served by LICH.

The summary is available here.

“We are very pleased with the thoroughness of the proposals and will give each of them their due consideration as we work to ensure a viable long term plan that benefits both the community and the State University of New York,” said SUNY Chairman H. Carl McCall. “All of the parties worked within the expedited timeframe and none of them asked for or required additional time. After more than a year of extreme financial stress on SUNY and delay tactics that only deprive the community of a health care solution, it is time to end the crisis and coalesce around this process. I continue to strongly urge all of the stakeholders to have a meaningful voice and to review the proposals and engage in this process to determine the health care future of your community.”
