NEW YORK (AP) - The State University of New York has selected Brooklyn Health Partners to run the financially strapped Long Island College Hospital.

SUNY announced the decision on Thursday. Negotiations to finalize the sale for the Brooklyn facility are expected to start right away.

State officials say LICH has been losing an “unsustainable” $13 million a month, an amount they want to stop subsidizing.

Officials say Brooklyn Health’s proposal includes a new full-service hospital with 300 to 400 beds, to get up and running within three years. In the interim, Brooklyn Health has said it will run a facility with 150 beds.

A state court last month approved an agreement that lets SUNY stop operating the hospital at the end of May.
