NY hospital to resume admitting patients, ambulance service
NEW YORK — Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn is set to start taking patients again Friday two days after the State University of New York ordered service to stop in its continuing push to shut down the financially-troubled facility.
But through protests, supporters have helped in the effort to restore normal operations.
SUNY, which took over the Cobble Hill hospital two years ago, says ambulances are also running again. The hospital plans on temporarily using doctors from other hospitals to make up for a shortage of specialists.
