SUNY Ends Negotiations with Brooklyn Health Partners
The attorneys for the State University of New York (SUNY) have terminated negotiations with Brooklyn Health Partners (BHP), the top bidder in the take over of Long Island College Hospital. The attorneys for SUNY contend that following good faith negotiations, they were still unable to execute a satisfactory contract agreement and consequently will move on to the second highest bidder. Attorneys for Brooklyn Health Partners dispute this claim, arguing that they have provided all requested documentation and the down payment to close the deal. Many legal commentators expect BHP to file suit against SUNY.
