That's It for Long Island College Hospital. Thanks for Trying, Brooklyn

To the nurses, Patients for LICH, health care workers, stroller moms, Cobble Hill Association and other associations,  Concerned Physicians, elected officials, Jim Walden and other attorneys, Justice Johnny Lee Baynes, and all people who tried their best to save Long Island College Hospital:

Thank you for all your marches and protests in the rain and snow, meetings, research, time away from your families, weekends blown, speeches and letter-writing campaigns.

You folks are the best. You achieved the most you could against a state hell-bent on destroying a hospital for reasons that have nothing to do with health.

Be proud of what you achieved.

In three or four years (after perhaps a few bribes pass under the table) a decision will be made that a hospital is needed in the same approximate area.

Keep healthy.

Remember it all started with Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

It was unrealistic to think LICH could stay open a half a billion in debt.

I disagree that it all started with Governor Cuomo. In my opinion, it all started with Continuum. Then again, the governor has been silent on the issue. If you're not part of the solution, etc.

So well said, McBrooklyn.

Also, it's obvious from the comment above about the so-called debt that many people have swallowed the SUNY story without examining the facts.
