According to the Brooklyn Eagle, one of the hospitals would be located in Brooklyn, and one elsewhere in the state. They would be operated on a pilot program basis.
Nurses affiliated with LICH and Interfaith told the Eagle they are worried this could be a million-dollar giveaway to private interests.
Assemblywoman Joan Millman told the Eagle, "The concept is a troubling one."
The story of LICH is already one of broken promises and looted coffers. There's no word yet which Brooklyn hospital will go for-profit. But the law is written in such a way it narrows the field to those affiliated with an approved academic medical institution -- which includes LICH.
