Long Beach Hospital is still closed nine months after hurricane Sandy. In order to get our voice heard in Albany, we must get on the phone and start signing petitions advocating for the re-opening of our medical center. Unless we work hard, together, the legislators in Albany will continue to put up obstacles and our local hospital will remain closed.
As an ENT specialist, I see numerous emergencies where minutes matter. Whether it is a patient on blood thinners who has a life-threatening nosebleed or someone who has a fish bone stuck in their throat, it is vital that we have REAL medical and emergency resources in our community. You deserve it and our entire Long Beach community deserves it! So get on the phone and let the legislators in Albany know that as a barrier island we need a local medical facility. Every voice counts!
