NYU Pulls Out of LICH Deal in Brooklyn Over Hiring Two Dozen LICH Nurses?

NYU Langone Medical Center announced late Thursday that it has pulled out of the deal to offer ambulatory care at the LICH site in Cobble Hill.

The withdrawal appears to leave the Fortis Property Group's proposal to buy LICH in tatters, the Brooklyn Eagle reports.

NYU gives as their reason for withdrawing: a lawsuit by NYSNA nurses, who were trying to get NYU to honor their promise to rehire as many of these nurses as posssible.(The promise that was in writing in the Fortis proposal.)

So let's be clear:

NYU is telling northwest Brooklyn that they are walking away from a $150 million state of the art ambulatory care center in Cobble Hill because two dozen nurses wanted them to honor their promise to hire them?

Obviously NYU had very little commitment to the project.
