From: Dr. Toomas Sorra- Concerned Physicians of LICH
The fight for LICH continues - included in this email are links to some of the recent key articles and developments, including:
-SUNY/DMC issuing order for LICH closure, despite a TRO (Temp restraining order )already in place.
-Public Advocate Bill De Blasio obtaining a new TRO from NYS Supreme Court on Friday prohibiting this action of SUNY.
-SUNY continuing its illegal actions during this weekend.
-Article in Wall Street Journal re: the Othmer bequest to LICH being "betrayed" by Continuum and SUNY/DMC and Warren Buffett's reaction to this.
There are also many other articles, letters, and videos which have been updated on the website in the past few days and will continue to be updated on a daily basis!
Please review, knowing that it is the effort of the LICH Coalition, which we have built over the past 6 months - including physicians, nurses, other LICH employees, local community leaders, and supportive elected officials - that has made our fight successful thus far.
The fight could have been over 6 months ago, but with our efforts, LICH is still alive -
and we will win in the end.
Please take note, Governor Cuomo!
