BROOKLYN - Long Island College Hospital has announced a new bid that would create 1,000 units of housing and an outpatient medical facility with a 24-hour emergency service.

The proposal would place 350 units as affordable housing, while the remainder would be placed at market value.

An earlier proposal from Fortis Property Group and NYU Langone Medical Center suggested replacing the hospital with luxury condos and an outpatient facility with emergency services.

Nurses who work at the hospital say they have been fighting for more than a year to see it remain a full-service hospital. Some went to Albany Tuesday to deliver a petition with 18,000 signatures to the SUNY Board of Trustees in hope of keeping the hospital open.
