Stop the closing of Kingsbrook
We are simply a group of concerned Brooklynites trying to stop the closing of this important community resource in an already underserved community.
Who we are
The Kingsbrook Community Action Committee has come together to demand that Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center stay open indefinitely. Kingsbrook is a safety-net hospital in East Flatbush, Brooklyn that has been serving our community for almost 100 years. It is slated for closing as part of a state-led process. Read the first letter we sent to Cuomo.

What We Want
All Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center services and beds must remain functioning with full staff for all 200 beds indefinitely.
Stop draining Kingsbrook of resources. Safety net hospitals should be fully funded.
The undemocratic and outdated 2016 restructuring plan to close Kingsbrook as a hospital must be scrapped completely.
Any organizations or individuals with financial conflicts of interest should be excluded from planning and decision-making about hospital closures and service cuts.
The pandemic has shown the need to maintain and expand hospital capacity. We additionally support a moratorium on all hospital closures and no cuts to safety net hospital funding.
