WASHINGTON, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rep. Nydia M. Velazquez (D-NY) issued the following statement regarding media reports that SUNY is considering a redevelopment proposal for Long Island College Hospital:
"SUNY is doing the opposite of what the community wants - going forward unilaterally with a redevelopment scheme that does not offer a full service hospital. From the beginning, SUNY's proposal process has been conducted in a secretive way that left out the community, elected officials and stakeholders. SUNY should start over -- this time, in a transparent manner with real community participation."
