Statement on Revised Methodist Hospital Expansion Plan

BROOKLYN, NY – City Council Member Brad Lander had the follow statement in response to the release of Methodist Hospital’s revised expansion plan at a community meeting last night:

“Strong healthcare services are part of what makes our neighborhood such a great place to live. We are lucky to have a hospital in our community that is doing well when others in Brooklyn are struggling. Methodist has shown it needs to grow in order to continue providing quality patient care in our community.

“I am pleased that Methodist Hospital invited feedback from the public on its proposed expansion, meaningfully incorporated that feedback into their plans, and will continue the conversation as they move forward. Methodist has been a good neighbor as it plans for this new facility. I trust and support their vision for an expanded Methodist.

“I understand that not everyone will be satisfied by the revisions that have been made to the plan. I am committed to working with neighbors and with Methodist on a plan that responds to their concerns and mitigates construction-related impacts going forward.”
