Join Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez in a protest to save Long Island College Hospital (LICH) Monday at 11 a.m., at 339 Hicks St.

SUNY Downstate has been trying to illegally close the hospital down, despite restraining orders and massive community opposition.

And on Tuesday, yet another event to help keep LICH open for care:

Tuesday at 4 p.m: Join Brooklyn hospital supporters for the Race for Brooklyn Hospitals. Meet at Coffey Park in Red Hook and go by bus and by car to different Brooklyn ERs. Let's see how long it really takes! Green flag at 5 p.m.

The politicos who have been at the rallies to keep LICH open will probably get more votes for themselves in the next election. Officials like Andrew Cuomo are steadily disappointing
And the Bloomberg legacy of having 12 hospitals close in his 12 years as mayor is quite a legacy isn't it?
And as LICH medical staff come to work daily to a well-equiped facility that has orders to turn away patients and as SUNY complains that the hospital is losing money and as Methodist Hospital in Park Slope gets slammed with new patients and as security guards in black suits create a negative rather than healing atmosphere, the real estate vultures are circling at the end of Atlantic Avenue ready to tear down a much-needed hospital and create luxury apartments with great views of the port.
