Long Beach Medical Center remains closed
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Months after Superstorm Sandy Long Beach Medical Center remains closed.
I think it's a big problem (With the patients in the city of Long beach ) I'm in the fire department and we now have to go to South Nassau. We're losing time in certain emergencies," said Ralph Issacs.
The CEO Of Long Beach Medical Center Douglas Melzer, says they're hoping to reopen in stages starting at the end of the April.
"We're moving as quickly as we can I know the community is anxious for us to reopen," he said.
The hospital is still a work in progress and you can see the rest of Dr. Sapna Parikh's tour of the hospital in the video above.
