SUNY Downstate Medical Center has further delayed the months-long process to sell its struggling Long Island College Hospital complex in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood.

SUNY officials told prospective buyers Wednesday evening that a planned final presentation that buyers were to make to SUNY’s board of trustees today would be pushed back to a date yet to be determined.

Last week, SUNY requested best and final offers for the complex, which is valued at about $270 million, according to Crain’s. The five bidders in the reckoning include developer Don Peebles; a partnership between Brooklyn Hospital and the Related Companies; another partnership between Fortis Property Group and NYU Langone Medical Center; Brisa Builders and Joe Chetrit; and a group called the Chinese Community Accountable Care Organization, according to the magazine.

Chetrit and Brisa may be disqualified, however, after it was revealed Wednesday that they had falsely claimed that two hospitals were joining them in the bid, according to the magazine. [Crain’s]  – Hiten Samtani
