The two most public contenders to take over ailing Long Island College Hospital continue to battle it out, while the arbiter of the decision—facility owner SUNY Downstate—remains tight-lipped.

SUNY has said that Brooklyn Hospital's bid came late and might not be considered. Let this epic saga roll on. [Crain's + NYDN; previously]
