Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn Heights is facing increasing opposition to its plans to downsize operations and facilities. A rally against the decision, made by the hospital’s parent company Continuum Health Partners, brought an estimated 100 to 200 protestors to Upper Van Vorhees Park, which faces Hicks Street. The news conference included elected officials, like Borough President Marty Markowitz, and hospital staff members who discussed alternatives to Continuum’s reorganization plan, which calls for selling off several buildings.
