Yes, there are money woes for hospitals like LICH. Just as with the 2008 financial crash, there is also a back story. Why is LICH losing money? And is LICH truly needed as a strategically-located hospital? Why is a private security firm required (the gentlemen in the black suits) at LICH when there are no patients?Why is a fully-staffed hospital turning away patients and diverting ambulances to Methodist Hospital and others in Manhattan?
Why is LICH being closed when Brooklyn's population is skyrocketting? How will another luxury apartment complex on the rubble of LICH affect health care? How much real estate money will be earned if LICH shuts down? How much is the property "worth"? How much are people "worth"?
With the threatened closing of LICH and Interfaith Hospital, the Bloomberg "legacy" will mean that 12 hospitals have been closed in his Honor's dozen years as mayor.
