Kingsboro Psychiatric Hospital in Flatbush will soon close its facility and consolidate with the South Beach Psychiatric Center in Staten Island, silive.com reports. The closure of Kingsboro was recommended by the state Health Department’s Brooklyn Task Force but was strongly protested by union members and advocates for the mentally ill. Some Brooklyn patients may not want to go to Staten Island and won’t get the treatment they need, silive.com quotes a spokeswoman for the New York State Public Employees Federation as saying.
