Long Island College Hospital loses potential buyer and now its ambulance services

The hospital announced it will no longer run

The hospital announced it will no longer run its ambulance services.

Cobble Hill - Residents who rely on Long Island College Hospital in Cobble Hill for care are concerned after learning that more cuts are coming.

Beginning Thursday, the hospital will no longer send out its own ambulances for 911 calls. City officials say FDNY units will replace the hospital ambulances.

This latest setback comes just after a deal to have Brooklyn Health Partners take over the hospital fell through. That leaves the hospital's future in limbo.

The hospital is set to close on May 23 if no deals are reached.
