Has anyone delivered at LICH (Long Island College Hospital) in Brooklyn?

Hello,

 I was just wondering if anyone can comment on their experience at LICH.  I happen to live around the corner from this hospital so it would be extremely convenient for me to go here.  Thanks in advance for any help!

  • I may be mistaken, but I believe they closed their maternity department in 2008 or 2009. 
  • you should take a tour there. i believe they are offered on saturdays. i did recently and truthfully i did not like it at all. their maternity ward is open but it is quite small, they only have 1 private room and alltogether i think they dont have too many semi private rooms either.
  • Thanks for the feedback.  I'll look into doing a tour.  I am thinking that even if I don't love it, I may just go there anyways because of the convenience.

    I've heard that some of the St. Vincent's doctors had their privileges transferred there.  St. V's has a reputation for being low-intervention, hands-off, take-all-the-time-you-need, etc.  I looked into LICH for that reason, but in the end decided I really liked a doctor affiliated with St. Luke's Roosevelt even though it's less convenient.

  • I live in Brooklyn Heights (like 3 blocks from LICH).  I have been to LICH for reasons other than childbirth and I knew from those experiences that I would not want to give birth there. I am delivering at NYU.
