Long Island College Hospital (LICH) doctors say they've been told by SUNY Downstate administrators to transfer all their patients out by Friday so that LICH could be shut down by Sunday.

Dr. Alice Garner, head of the neonatal unit at LICH, said “I received verbal orders that we are to transfer all patients by tomorrow so they can shut us down by Sunday. We did not receive one written word to substantiate this. We were told the surgical areas and the G.I. suite will be closed tomorrow in direct violation of the restraining order, putting the community at risk.”



Doctors at Long Island College Hospital were ordered by representatives of the State University of New York to discharge their patients by tomorrow and were told that the hospital will officially close on Sunday.

Several elected officials attempted to meet with hospital officials this afternoon but were ordered to leave.
