Gov­er­nor de­liv­ers mil­lions in aid

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

New York Gov. An­drew Cuomo de­liv­ered the first fed­eral aid since Su­per­storm Sandy hit his state — more than $114 mil­lion for New York Univer­sity Lan­gone Med­i­cal Cen­ter and $40 mil­lion to help re­move de­bris on Long Is­land. Cuomo vis­ited the 1,000-bed hospi­tal on Man­hat­tan’s East Side on Sun­day. It was flooded dur­ing the late Oc­to­ber storm and lost power, and more than 300 pa­tients had to be evac­u­ated. Full ser­vices at the hospi­tal will not re­open un­til Jan­uary. Robert Gross­man, the NYU Med­i­cal Cen­ter’s dean and CEO, said the cost of bring­ing the com­plex back to full work­ing or­der will amount to an es­ti­mated $1.1 bil­lion.
