Long Island College Hospital (full name University Hospital of Brooklyn at Long Island College Hospital) is a teaching hospital in the Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights neighborhoods of Brooklyn. It was founded in 1858 and later became the first hospital to use stethoscopes and anesthesia. In 2011, it merged with SUNY Downstates University Hospital of Brooklyn and functioned as the medical campus of the Downstate College of Medicine. In 2013 the Trustees of the State University of New York voted to close the hospital and the closure was approved by the New York State Department of Health. Fortis Property Group stepped forward to buy the hospital and convert it into a mixed-use space, but the Fortis plan was not favored by then mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio because it included too much luxury housing and no full service hospital. Brooklyn Health Partners then made a bid promising to convert the site into a 300- 400-bed hospital. SUNY eventually rejected their offer, however, claiming that BHP failed to complete terms of the agreement. The future of the historic hospital is still uncertain.
