BROOKLYN - SUNY has reopened the bidding process for the future of the Long Island College Hospital.

Residents and elected officials gathered today, accusing SUNY of misleading the public with their practices.

Some elected officials say the community needs viable medical services, not luxury real estate development.

For the moment, submissions are only open to the developers that have already submitted plans to buy the site.

SUNY says the reopened process will ensure greater transparency and openness to give the public a better opportunity to review.
