BROOKLYN (PIX11) — Long Island College Hospital says it will close next week.
The hospital says on May 22nd, all patients will be discharged and transferred to other hospitals and long term care facilities.
Just under 48 hours ago, the hospital said it would no longer accept 9-1-1 ambulances to the its ER.
Now, only walk-in patients at LICH will get medical screenings until next Thursday at 7 a.m.
Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected, in part, on his promise to keep the Brooklyn hospital open.
It looked like he’d pulled it off until a deal between LICH’s owner and Brooklyn health partners fell apart last week.
