Amidst protests, NYU Langone takes over health center at LICH
Brooklyn site renamed ‘NYU Langone-Cobble Hill’
NYU Langone Medical Center reopened a walk-in emergency department at the former Long Island College Hospital (LICH) in Brooklyn early Friday morning under a new name: “NYU Langone-Cobble Hill.”
Inside the refurbished facility, NYU Langone staff familiarized themselves with computer systems and made up observation beds.
Outside, protesters chanted, cried and hugged long-time LICH nurses and healthcare workers as they streamed out of the emergency room doors at the end of their final shift.
