Albanese Addresses LICH Rally at Coffey Park

After an appearance at Greek Independence Day parade events across the city today, Democratic Mayoral candidate Sal Albanese joined nurses, doctors, labor leaders, local elected officials and community members this afternoon for a rally and march to save Long Island College Hospital (LICH) at Coffey Park in Red Hook.

At a Brooklyn candidates forum last week, Albanese, calling LICH an essential northern Brooklyn medical institution, called for a moratorium on hospital closings in Brooklyn. 

Parent institution SUNY Downstate's push to close LICH, temporarily blocked by a court order, has raised serious concerns about timely access to emergency medical care in Brooklyn, Albanese said.
