From the Daily News:
Peninsula Hospital’s recovery efforts have flatlined and the hospital will be closing, officials confirmed Monday.
The troubled Far Rockaway facility had flunked a state inspection of its lab last month, forcing ambulances to be diverted and most patient care to be suspended.
Peninsula was months — not weeks — away from reopening the lab, according to bankruptcy documents filed by trustee Lori Lapin Jones on Monday.
The state Department of Health “determined that substantial additional time, effort and expense would be required before the laboratory would be eligible for re-certification,” Jones wrote to the bankruptcy court.
With insufficient money to keep the hospital afloat for that length of time, Jones wrote that closure was necessary.
