Dear Fellow Community Members,
I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting the New York State Department of Health (“DOH”) at a public forum on the future of the Long Beach Medical Center (“LBMC”). South Nassau Communities Hospital (“SNCH”) has also agreed to participate in the forum in Long Beach on April 13.
This forum was scheduled in response to my letter to the DOH, sent on February 16, requesting a public forum that is mandated by law to be held when a hospital closes.
I believe this discussion will allow for officials and SNCH to hear directly from residents affected by the closing of LBMC and the subsequent lack of vital medical services on the Barrier Island.
I encourage you all to attend and share your concerns so that our voices can be heard.
Assemblyman, 20th District
Where: Long Beach City Hall, 6th Floor
When: April 13, 2015 at 7 p.m.
