Emergency Rally to Save LICH!

Please join us for an emergency rally in midtown Manhattan this Thursday, Feb. 7 to save Long Island College Hospital. SUNY will be meeting about the closure of LICH, which would destroy healthcare services for 100,000 patients and jobs for more than 2,000 workers.

When: Thursday, Feb. 7 at 2:30 PM

Where: 33 West 42nd St. (between 5th and 6th Ave.) Manhattan

We must take action to preserve quality care and quality jobs in our city!

In Unity,

George Gresham

Save Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn!

Recently the State University of New York announced the proposed closure of Long Island College Hospital of Brooklyn. This would be disastrous for Brooklyn patients, LICH caregivers, and working families throughout the city, and we need your help.

Contact the SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpherat at chancellor@suny.edu or (800) 342-3811 and the Board of Trustees at trustees@suny.edu or (518) 320-1157.

Tell them that SUNY should explore all other options to keep LICH’s vital healthcare service and good jobs in our community.

LICH provides crucial medical care to over 100,000 people a year, including seniors, working families and vulnerable patient populations. LICH is also one of the area’s largest employers, and a closure would mean the loss of 2,000 good jobs and a severe blow to our local economy. Take action now and stay tuned!
