Chief Bankruptcy Judge Carla E. Craig held off on ruling on Interfaith Medical Center’s closure on Wednesday, urging stakeholders to enter into mediation to work out a compromise that would combine elements of a plan submitted by Interfaith supporters and a closure plan backed by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) and the state Department of Health.

Judge Craig assigned as mediator Judge Elizabeth Stong, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for the Eastern District of New York.

Interfaith, serving Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights and nearby neighborhoods, was forced to file for bankruptcy last December after the state rejected its proposed restructuring plan.

Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center has expressed an interest in operating Interfaith’s clinics and urgent care center, but not its 287 inpatient beds.
