Brooklyn Health Partners is seeking an injunction against SUNY for trying to end their negotiations to buy Long Island College Hospital (LICH) and move on to their preferred partner, the non-hospital bidder Don Peebles.
Merrell Schexnydre, CEO of BHP, told the Brooklyn Eagle at state Supreme Court in Brooklyn on Thursday, “We’re trying to insure that we’ll get a full service hospital here in Brooklyn. We were afraid because the SUNY counsel sent us a letter that they may disqualify us for reasons that we don’t believe are fair. And for that reason we came and asked the judge to look at our side of the equation.”
Schexnydre said the California-based group, which won the bidding war for LICH after residents fought for more than a year to keep LICH open, is committed to "bringing a full-service, state of the art hospital to Brooklyn."
