(PIX11) –– Bill de Blasio is keeping Interfaith Medical Center on life support…at least for now.

The mayoral candidate’s legal action has postponed the hospitals closure for 16 days.

De Blasio took to federal court to argue that the Department of Health rushed to approve Interfaith’s closure plan without proper oversight.

Today the court approved a postponement acknowledging that the plan failed to meet legal requirements.
