Save the date & join us with the first of a number of pop-up fundraising/awareness events to protect our community's access to healthcare.
We need LICH to continue and improve providing full service healthcare to our ever-expanding population. Seconds from reaching an emergency room can save your life or that of a loved one.
Demand, contribute & improve.


ICU fundraising effort

Nurses in the ICU have put together a moving video to commemorate our long fight to save LICH, documenting all of our efforts and the many rallies, protests, marches, & meetings from Brooklyn to Albany - from that 1st rally in January to that momentous final day in April - and all who helped us get there. You and your friends might have been caught by the camera!  These expanded "LICH OPEN FOR CARE" DVDs are available for $15 minimum donation. All proceeds will be contributed to the Concerned Physicians of LICH legal fund. 

 Reserve your copy today.  Contact ICU RNs Julie (days) or Tim (nights)718-780-4616
