Governor Andrew Cuomo wrote a letter this week to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, asking her to help save four Brooklyn hospitals.
In his letter, Cuomo asked for permission to use $10 billion of the $17.5 billion that the state anticipates from Medicaid reorganization, according to the Daily News.
In the last few months threats of merger and bankruptcy have faced the four hospitals, which Cuomo aides told the Daily News are Long Island College Hospital, SUNY Downstate Brooklyn, Interfaith Medical Center and Brookdale Medical Center.
