Governor delivers millions in aid
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.
