BROOKLYN - A judge did not give a full ruling today in the bankruptcy proceedings to determine the future of Interfaith Medical Center, according to the New York State Nursing Association’s Eliza Bates.

The judge ordered nonbinding mediation between all involved parties with the goal of coming together with a plan to maintain services in the community.

The result of the mediation could lead to the restoration of full service, the continuation of limited service or having another hospital take over to serve existing patients.

Interfaith, which is the only full service hospital in central Brooklyn, was originally scheduled to close in August. The facility has 1,500 employees.
