“Once again SUNY Downstate demonstrates blatant disregard for the court’s ruling that the hospital remain open for service. Their decision to remove all remaining patients creates a chaotic and unsafe environment, particularly when ambulances were already being diverted from other Brooklyn hospitals earlier this week. Preserving access to vital health care – especially in the middle of a dangerous heat wave – is essential. We demand that LICH keep its doors open as stipulated by law.”
