Yet another vote to close the hospital:
News sources are stating the most of the patients have already been transferred to other facilities, and the hospital's staff is rapidly shring as they accept other positions.
SUNY has stated it wishes to make the soon-to-be-closed hospital into a training center for health care workers, but the analysts are stating it has no means to pull this off in the short term.
So, it will likely spend a good deal of time vacant before SUNY figures out what to do with it. Needless to say, it will be very tempting for them to sell it to a housing developer.
If NYS pulls this off, it will have figured out a way to close the surplus of money losing hospitals that no health corporation wants: Use SUNY as a proxy.
Brutal times for hospitals and patients in Brooklyn.
